dc.description.abstract This thesis is a collection of poems, most often narrative-driven. While exploring concepts of identity, sexuality, religion, love, and familial complexity, these poems investigate the “tenderness of pain” (a description borrowed from Pema Chodron). These poems are also interested in “wisdom,” and how we know what we know? The speaker in many of these poems asks questions, and then strives to accept a lack of answers. Keen to rest in uncertainty, the speaker is eager to be patient, listen, filter, and find one’s core. Some poems are grieving, and others celebrating, and many both at once. Lastly, another layer of this thesis is a curiosity in what we can learn from the natural world. What does nature teach us about the human condition?
