A bit slow at first with lots of poems about Piercy's mother's death. However, the last half was full of gems, many about Jewish spirituality or adult love.

My favorite poems in this collection were:
* No one came home - one of the best 9-11 poems I've ever read
* In the department store
* Sometimes while I am chanting - about spiritual experience
* Tapuz: an orange - the scandal of female rabbis
* Black leaves - adult love
* Roomers, rumors
