Abstract

This poetry speaks of people in and of their many dimensions. I don't set out with any one purpose when I write--that would smother the poem--but if there is one thing I am seeking, it is honest portrayal, the truth of the feeling; As far as the creative process is concerned, I let the poem come, with all its sounds, plays on words, multiple meanings. I let it form into its own mode and tone, and then I look at it, listen to it. Sometimes a poem requires little revision, sometimes it requires much revision, but in the process, I attempt to allow the poem to become its own voice, its own truth. Perhaps you will feel it, and that will be its purpose.
