last night's mouth is a narrative collection of prose poems chronicling the journey from break-up to new love. The manuscript employs overarching metaphors of math and music to communicate the attempts of the protagonist, Cassie, to rationalize emotional situations, while list poems emulate those struggles formulaically. Frequent references to popular culture contemporize her relationships. Rhythmic lines and scrambled syntax express the sense of poetry in prosaic paragraphs.
