Abstract

Milking The Devil is a collection of poetry that seeks to balance the need for liberty and urge toward devotion. Rebellion becomes the fuel for disciplined religious practice and the erotic becomes a celebration of the incarnate word. While devotion is inspired through hymns to religious figures, compassion is embodied in persona poems of the worst of sinners.
