Allowing the reader to follow the personal, cultural, and artistic threads that intertwine to create our conscious understanding, these poems explore how family, culture, class, gender, historical moment, landscape, and the language we use come together to impact reality. From inch worm moths to Gregg shorthand, from fishing on the bayou to the horrors of world war, from the impact of great art and literature to the profound devastation of natural disaster, these poems show us how the tendrils of meaning running through them are made of words, which weave together to form the fabric of our lives."@en ;
