We Become Delicate Boats: Poems and Essays

4.11 - 1251 ratings - Source



My collection of poems and essays, We Become Delicate Boats, takes inspiration from a broad range of sources that shift into each other: paintings, pop culture, literary figures, dreams, relationships, faith, family, history. For example, some poems throw together unexpected bedfellows, like Kafka's Gregor Samsa and Marie Antoinette; others are anecdotal, like one that describes going on a blind date with a man who actually turns out to be blind, some re-imagine stories we already know, like one in the voice of Medusa, talking about which occasions call for her various snake qwigs.q Although quite a few pieces are playful, an underlying theme emerges: a simultaneous obsession and deep disturbance with frailty, with disfigurement. Through the poems and essays, I try to articulate that frailty, and find an attendant humor and beauty.siblings are married and have kids. And ita#39;s getting to where all of my friends are married and have kids, too. Not only does this cause me to feel antsy, ita#39;s also unfortunate because we cana#39;t have sex until we get married. So Ia#39;m a virgin.
