A note about the text:

The poems in this series are part of an experimental-erasure series of W. B. Yeats' "Leda and the Swan." These poems endeavor to investigate Leda's perspective in an un-aestheticized way, contrary to Yeats' original drafts (allegedly using trauma to a femme body as political metaphor), and final product (aestheticized trauma to a femme body).
