All the Blood Involved in Love

All the Blood Involved in Love enters the world as the US continues its dramatic fights over reproductive rights.

Marshall’s poems traverse familial mythography to investigate contemporary politics, Blackness, reproductive justice, and the stakes of race and interracial partnership, queerness, and love. With an unflinching seriousness she interrogates womanhood, meditates on race and queerness, and considers the monetary, mental, and physical costs of adopting or birthing a Black child.
