Abstract

No More Odes to My Mouth is a collection of poetry exploring the effects of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder on a speaker as she moves through a patriarchal world. Dealing in themes of sexual assault, gaslighting, witness, art, family, and love, the collection is a careful balancing of colloquial storytelling and lyric curiosity.
