Enclosed in the body of this profile, you will undoubtedly find the ramblings of a writer who currently binge writes her poetry, who hasn’t taken an English college course in over a year, who finds herself wondering at what the French poet Robert Desnos meant by the phosphorus of desire in his “Chant du Ciel” (Sky Song). A double major, She was reading more French than English because this is was last semester, and her future leaned ever so closer towards the country with over 462 different kinds of cheese. So pardon her English, if it’s a little rusty.
She thinks of poetry as dancing within the lines, as a way to touch a stranger more intimately that one can touch themselves—while still maintaining distance through paper and ink. Narrative is her portal into the realm of that mysterious process of creation she calls poetry.
Like many, she started writing from a very young age. She and her twin used to sneak up to their attic and create stories about the faces they saw in dusty frames, pretending they were in the midst of a war in a magical kingdom. When their parents locked up the attic, they escaped with notepads and pens to the lawn behind the house, beginning what would become their journey into the realm of writing. The little stories she and her sister wrote to each other transitioned to days when she would hike out to the middle of the forest on her parent’s property and write under the pines. Later, in high school, she was introduced to the works of Billy Collins and Sharon Olds and writing poetry was like putting on a shoe that fits. She did not know how to tie the laces, but was intrigued by the process.
