dc.description.abstractFramed between the first poem, which recreates a drowning experience, and the final poem, which looks at the internment of a body, this collection of poetry is my attempt at understanding life and death as a continuous process during which the body, the container for our life undergoes various changes. In these poems I attempt to dissolve boundaries from animate to inanimate, from human to animal, from one gender to another while also overcoming fear of the body, fear of change, and fear of speechlessness. Most of the poems take place in a dreamlike state and thus make use of longer sentences and a more complicated syntax to create fluid boundaries in a world where the afterlife is always present.en_US
