Note Poems
Summary The work of care falls disproportionately on women and often renders them lacking and unacknowledged in their labor. This volume explores personal and historical trauma, bonds between mothers and sisters, and our estrangement from the natural world and from ourselves due to an exploitative and extractive relationship to land and peoples (human and otherwise). Through an allegorical envisioning of a world that is like our own but heightened through the individual lives and responsibilities of three sisters, Natura, Providentia, and Fortuna, the poems sound out in mourning and frustration-and try to imagine the world otherwise. A transformative journey through the shadows towards reconciliation both between sisters and with oneself.
