Like any powerful woman in her position would do, Baer takes the criticism she gets from being a writer, a mother, a woman on the internet and makes it into art. On the left page are real messages and comments, positive and negative, Baer has received while the right page has an erasure (or blackout) poem taken from the message, blacked out to reveal only a few words and phrases. They are sparse and minimal but, with the origin in mind, they are beautiful and bold.
