The author has sought to relay personal experience in a manner that will speak to all who have been the victims of love gone awry and who seek peace with the residual emotions. The author explores her own personal experience with illness, from coping with and managing incurable disease, to overcoming the obstacles and learning acceptance. The title piece, aSkirting the Issue, a is a political piece, dealing with issues and challenges women have confronted over the past fifty years. There are also pieces relating to death and loss, and what it means to live with eternal regret. The poet combines brutal honesty about herself and her emotions with a nakedness that invites the reader to do the same.
