Nothing to Do with Me is messy because survival is messy, and that is what this collection is: a study of fight and flight. Each poem brawls and bellows, screams and scrams, claws and clashes, struggles and ultimately survives to tell its tale. Every word is a willful act of existence.
Sarah Xerta has done more than write a book; she has created a weapon in the war against the unspoken. It is not autobiographical but bio, graphic, auto … exposures of the self as it moves through life, without filters or facades. Xerta engages us in bloody, beautiful combat and challenges us to live uncensored.
