Kathy Acker wrote, "My mother began to love at the same moment in her life that she began to search for who she was. This was the moment she met my father. Since my mother felt that she had to be alone in order to find out who she was and might be, she kept abandoning and returning to love".

An Orchid Punching Letters is a collection of images and words about a man named Man, the American Southwest, dreams of snakes, and found words on love I keep returning to. Printed and assembled at the Beacon Hill Library and Studio Bedroom in Seattle, Wa.
