While I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty in different kinds of writing, I’ve always felt that poetry truly leaves my bones out in the sun. I have the tendency to direct movies from mundanities in my head, and I use the pen as a fishing line for lost questions we forget to answer. I’ve grown a lot in clearing the fog in my voice this year, but I’m excited to learn and grow even more in the next.
