The Deer Longs for Streams of Water, by Ashley Mares, is a collection of poems that have visceral, supernatural, and spiritual themes. The author explores the connections between a woman's body and a woman's faith, and how this connection affects her relationships. With each poem, the narrator is a woman exploring the impermanence of the body and the link to sleep, desire, and faith.
