A copy of this book is held in the zine collection of the Philadelphia Soapbox, an artists' book collective.

The first bit of this episodic poem :
It’s this thin envelope, empty, closed
gasping for air though your knuckles
are still flickering –what you hold

was never mailed, lets you rest
read the address over and over
just to move it further off

away from this boiling mountainside
ripping apart, flowing down your arm
with nothing left and cools –these days

you don’t lick the glue –in all directions
your mouth is her name, alone
coming back as ashes and snow.
