Gigglepuss delves into a past pockmarked with loss, broken family dynamics, and the looming shadow of familial mental illness. These poems touch on sexual abuse, lost relationships, the influence of pop culture, and the intensity of motherhood set against the at times humorous backdrop of stark self-awareness, irony and even absurdity. Bucking against a patriarchal society, this collection is a provocative, reflective and at times confrontational portrayal of our human need for connection, self- identity and home.
