Does one fall in love with a country in the same ways one falls in love with a person? How do the borders of a country complicate the borders of a person? What happens when a country breaks your heart? In For That Return Passage: A Valentine for the United States of America Lisa Birman has created a unique collection of poems that seek to answer these questions. Using immigration forms, love letters, memoir, translations, and cut-ups of the US Constitution, The Bill of Rights, The Declaration of Independence and even the language on a one dollar bill, these poems measure the decisions of citizenship against the decisions of love.
