Verge begins with a small fox waiting at the river's edge, symbolizing a woman at a turning point in her life. The fox lopes through the poems, at first looking back on the “cold yesterday” of childhood, then travelling with the poet as she moves through various changes and losses in her life. The river holds the past and, in the end, the small fox and the woman find their way across, coming to a place of acceptance and peace.
our hearts were seeds / our parents stitched / in thin acidic soil
