What are you working on?
I’m currently eighty or so poems into a sequence called “bone requires bone”. I wanted to find a way to address the world of abuse and abusers. I have had my own experiences with violent men, and it felt like a long meditation on the subject might be cathartic for me and maybe for others that have had similar experiences.
