Publisher Comments:

Flavored by the authors Chicana and Native American roots, this poetry collection explores eroticism and sensuality while keeping to the confines of 100 words. Simultaneously intelligent and humorous, this book investigates the themes of passion and desire as it conveys intense political ideas and reactions. Written by a woman of color, this compilation will resonate with audiences beyond her race and ethnicity.
