In Gravity's Current

In Gravity's Current is a collection of poems centered around the trauma of war, the fluidity of memory, and the act of memorializing as a way of coming to terms with mortality. It raises questions about what constitutes a home, and how our memory and attempts at memorializing construct that idea of home. Through a metaphor of falling, I attempt to share my grandfather's stories of being an air corps navigator for the US Army and prisoner of war during World War II, and engage it with my own experiences abroad, and the responsibility I feel as my grandfather's biographer.
