In the LaureLs, Caught is a collection of lighthearted, deep-
rooted poems written around the Appalachian region of North Carolina in
Madison County. An adventurous, intellectually restless native, Lee Ann
Brown writes out of attachment but with the slant of a transplanted outsider.
She investigates elements of local language, musicality, material culture, and landscape, using collage, found poetry, and oral history and anecdote.

A Daylily’s blossom
only lasts one day
Binnorie o Binnorie
My grandmother showed me
how to have my say
the glory  o the glory
Now every time I see a faded drooping bud
Binnorie o Binnorie
I deadhead it like she did
so the rest can live on
the story  o the story

Josh finds himself in San Francisco as a sex slave to an older man, but quickly tires of the abuse. He turns to working in the sex industry and searches for true love as he tries to figure out his new life.
