A New Alone
Publication or External Link
In my poems, I'm interested in exploring the kinds of fragmented narratives and deep images that comprise memory. I think that we experience life mostly in recollection and I try to work with the sense of loss inherent in remembering and the discontinuities that let us go forward. So on the whole, I am trying to write poems that are mimetic to experience.
A lot of these poems happen in their nouns more than with verbs, partly because I'm trying to capture the heaviness of memory, and partly to keep the voice at enough narrative distance in the poems. I've observed more verbs in my newer poems, so perhaps I'll get to writing poems more alive with presence and so more truly mimetic.
