These poems, likened to Elizabeth Bishop's, are about desire, love, seeing, gender, difference, ecology, queerness in the "natural" world, loss, LGBTQ lineage, and its community. They contain a sinuous, shape-shifting quality that makes her explorations of sex and selfhood all the more resonant.

Jenny Johnson won a 2015 Whiting Fellowship. She lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
