Synopsis: Body on the Wall ranges from eroticism to domestic abuse, from self-mutilation to Zen, from coming out to domestic love. Untangling the many threads that make up a life, Wing writes about being a daughter, violence against women and girls, mental illness, her identity as a lesbian, her love for her wife, and the search for spiritual direction.

From the Back Cover: "My garden pleads for one more dances," writes Michelle Wing. This brave debut collection inhabits landscapes of violence and trauma, but its triumph resides in compassionate and unflinching poems that celebrate the resilience of ordinary lives. These poems emanate from the body of a woman eager to heal and be awed by nature's abundance, to be embraced by human and animal love. Transcendent songs of survival, rich in metaphor, packing a punch to the gut and heart, Wing's poems are an inspiration for any reader longing to deeply inhale our fragile, dangerous and astounding world. "The rose I give is an explosion...This blood-spattered bush cries out/in the throes of transformation./ Here is wild passion unbound/leaf by leaf."
- Barbara Rockman, author of Sting and Nest

These poems are like swallowed charcoal, purifying the toxins they've ingest. Brave, bracing, tender and true.
-Janet Fitch, author of White Oleander and Paint It Black

Body on the Wall teaches us "How to Free a Poem" and by extension liberate ourselves - it instructs us to open a new page and leap in. In this collection, we leap into empathy. Michelle Wing's poems endure the harshest elements of our humanity (loss, abuse, illness, oppression) in order to escape bondage and find a unification that heals and strengthens. Her poetry moves readers the way music organically guides people towards the joy of dancing. These poems demonstrate how lyric poetry is capable of merging "two histories." Like dancers locked in the same gracious movements, these poems create "a third (history) that is ours both bound and free."
-Nicelle Davis, author of Becoming Judas
