This collection of work explores conflict and connection. The poems are shorter, but they are no less conflicted about human nature and our own desires to be good, while struggling with less-good desires. My construction of progressive imagery has changed from Confessional to a sensory connectivity of situation and feel. Breaking the collection into parts allows for grouping according to speaker relationship and voice.
