An exploration of womanhood from nostalgic glimpses of a mother to inventions and reinvisionings of the self, No Road Map, No Breaks brings us to the edges of clarity like wisps of smoke from an elegant cigarette. With images frozen from the past and pulled into the present, it introduces us to character after character. Each one, a strong women both mysterious and revealing, impressing herself upon the reader before disappearing into the white space. Gentle breaths to prepare for the beauty of the next poem.
