The short, spare poems of The Arrangements are concerned with physical and ideological boundaries of body, mind and language, exploring where they meet and the different ways in which they bleed into and maintain one another’s discreteness. Praise for Colby's book, I Mean: “With verve and purpose, Colby plays trick after alluring trick to write herself in and out of meaning.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
