Author's Bio

The language of imagination helps us track the unsayable, whose footsteps we must follow whether they exist or not. Poetry lives in that paradox. Exciting language is what transports us – shifting gears, asking questions, understating, overstating, reconciling opposites. It links distant things and includes us all in what we've been searching for – the unknowable.
