Poet’s Note

Thanks to the artist Mark Bradford and his process in his work, my own writing process changed. I no longer write in a linear fashion, and I've been much more invested the past few years in getting interesting text down on the page and then figuring out surprising ways into and through poems. This pursuit has not only allowed me to generate poems that fascinate and engage me, but it has also granted me the ability to interrogate and talk to and about my ghosts and family.
