"Love on the Streets" is a selection from two of Doubiago's book-length poems, "Hard Country" and "South America Mi Hija" and from the collections "Psyche Drives the Coast" and "Body and Soul," plus new poems. "Hard Country" takes place in 1976, on a journey across the U.S. with a lover, climaxing on the lake where his mother drowned herself when he was ten. "South America Mi Hija" is a journey the poet made with her 15 year-old daughter to Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. "Psyche Drives the Coast" are poems written while Doubiago lived mainly on the road, and in diverse, passionate communities of poets from Mendocino to the Canadian border. "Body and Soul" was written while she was a resident of Oregon, and the new poems are written from her present home in San Francisco.
