A series of interconnected poems on an abusive relationship and codependency. This is a powerful work due to it's perspective: the linking of pain/hate/love into a solid atlas of abuse. This is not pretty poetry. It is potent poetry which is sharp of metaphor and forces the reader to think, to compare their own lives to this. "Pain is an old cave/ you always have/ to come back to" It is a work for those who are involved in a relationship in the 1990's; it is too important to ignore.--R.R. Lee Etzwiler
