dc.description.abstract'Jumping in Quickly is Best' examines the expectations that women and men have for themselves and each other. These moments of unveiled expectations happen in bars, in bed, while listening to George Jones, slapping another layer of make-up on. In these moments the common phrases and conversational style of the poems allow the characters to open up within the language and therefore to the reader. The characters with this language then have no problem asking for directions to Winnemucca or ordering another beer, and the reader is sitting right there in the next barstool over, listening and humming to the music. It is the people in these places, the music, the sight of the falling sun and their reaction to what is expected of them that lead to moments of discovery and self-reflection.en_US
