Their work is testament to a generational change in Russophone poetry, which has seen a decline in the certainties and declamatory style of the pre- vious generation in favor of all-embracing polyphony and linguistic experimentation, an ethical commitment to decolonization and left- ist politics, and a strong focus on diverse spectrums of gender and sexuality.

The poem was published not long after her debut novel, Рана (Wound), a hybrid text that includes essays, poems, and novelistic plot devices and enters into dialogue with several female thinkers, both past and present.
