  1. I am so curious about where this poem came from in you, knowing how much you love to read and how much you love the written word. It’s wonderful, dark, and piercing.

    1. Thank you for your kind words about it!

      It speaks to how very difficult I find it to capture experiences or beliefs in words. I struggle so hard to compose prose that doesn’t feel blunt and false to me. The first line came to me as I was falling asleep the other night…

      1. Ah, yes. I definitely know that experience! (Though could I find the right kind/combo/order of words to accurately describe the experience?!) I always feel like my prose ends up either too facile or too academic. Brutish, indeed.
