dc.description.abstractIn his introduction describing the themes and inspiration for this collection of original poems, the author writes “I explored the futility of, as (Portuguese poet, Fernando) Pessoa says, “longing for impossible things.” In other words, this SIP is a reckoning of loss and longing. These are a collection of lost friends, cancelled plans, dismissed dreams. It is a compilation of incomplete and fragmentary things, and the ordeal of necessarily living with them. These are poems that deal with longing and futility. Near to longing and the memories with which I grounded these poems are dreaming and imagination. This collection treads the overlap of memory and unreality. Doing so allowed me to explore different landscapes of longing. These themes lended themselves well to the exploration of aspects like form, tense, capitalization, and imagery.”en_US
