Forgive My Architecture is a collection of poetry that traces the structure of identity, religion, family, adolescence, love, and sexuality, seeking ultimately to renovate or demolish these constructs. At the foundation of these poems are women and other marginalized voices who wish to reconcile the anatomy of their desires with a conflicting exterior world. Led by the possibility of acceptance and understanding, these speakers strip their walls to expose the ambiguity ofhistory, the instability of safety, and the forfeiture of faith. Only through the act of dismantling can they relinquish themselves and rebuild.
