Intimate, like creation. Intimate, like destruction.
Poetry is a practice of deep inquiry. Poems reveal themselves to me much like an oracle; yet, each poem also becomes a spell.
I am a synesthete; poems are a way for me to express kinesthetic, Emotional Body experience in a sculpture of words. They are an internal form of Performance Art. They are themselves music, not just lyrics.
Some say poetry is dead; it is not. It is homeopathic medicine for a time in which we move too fast, as it asks us to slow down and look again, and again. To imagine for ourselves. To be present. And to feel.
