With dark, sparse language, feminist poet Bethany Ebert writes of her experiences with love, sex, and the expectations of society. She uses a humorous "confessional poetry" style, dancing with the topic of truth vs. fiction. She is often very bleak. Manipulating the truth and illustrating it in vivid metaphor, Ms. Ebert writes of a difficult relationship as the Berlin Wall. In another poem, she describes herself as a vampire and serial killer, draining men of their energy. The poems were written between 2002 and 2015. The Moon Is Always Bisexual includes poetry done in haiku form and free-verse, as well as experimental alphabet poetry and list poetry. It is a short book, but gleefully morbid and at times very insightful.
