These poems deal with a marriage between a man and a woman and the disintegration of that marriage. Most of the poems are told from the perspective of the wife as she makes sense of her changing roles and titles. There is a shift toward the end of the thesis when she grows tired of speaking for the two of them. It is here where the poems shift from first person to third person.
