Erica Hunt writes at the intersection of poetry and emancipatory politics--racial and gender justice, feminist ethics, and participatory democracy--showing us that altering our reading strategies frames our experiences. Ultimately, she finds that words matter, savoring the small ones: articles, pronouns, collective, plural and singular. This collection brings together out of print works and journals of the same period, to speak across "crumpled" time, the past seen from then to now.
