Monica's poetry performance persona is essentially who she is in her daily life: a highly energetic, emotionally open extrovert. Her performances are fueled by hubris, high heels, and eye contact. These elements allow her to turn the stage into a site of reclaimed power despite existing in a world where she occupies marginalized identities as a woman of color.
Performing helps Monica to channel her powerlessness into something deeply evocative and productive. Her performances focus primarily on themes of race, sex, and spirituality. However, as her life shifts to different foci, her work tends to shift as well to incorporate the new subjects moving in and out of her life.
