- ItemPink GutsFitzpatrick, AbigailPink Guts is a collection of poems divided by two creative nonfiction essays and one flash fiction piece. The poems explore many forms from traditional sonnet to free verse, and explore topics such as childhood, poverty, womanhood, abuse and neglect, nature. The language of the poems aims to balance formal and informal, invoke surprising and unique images, and seeks humor out in unexpected places. There is a narrative arc throughout the manuscript that offers parallels with nature such as insects, trees, water, fire and natural disaster. There is a challenge of the traditional view of religiously assigned power: the idea of good versus evil, and the process of assigning the titles of devil and god, the process of assigning those titles and connotations to living individuals (ex. the demonization of women and minorities, the suggestions behind male religious, political, economic and familial authorities).
