The poems in Girl Torpedo address gendered injustice, and the ways in which violence against women is often condoned or ignored. Rife with sass and swagger, these poems are reclamation spells, war cries, elegies for girlhood stolen, and amulets for the unborn. They chart the delights and dreads of mother-love, and wrestle with the responsibility of living in both privilege & marginalization, especially in terms of negotiating power of the body. Invoking a sisterhood of survival with language rendered in velocity and volatility, Girl Torpedo wants to sink the old battleship and resurface whole.
