I’m honored that my poem “Cactus Dawn” is included in the Summer 2017 issue of Off the Coast. This issue is available free online.
About “Cactus Dawn”
This poem allows the reader a peak into the internal monologue of the poem’s speaker. By structuring it as a stream consciousness poem, I’m appealing to the reader to take an active role in getting to know this speaker, to navigate between surreal images and memories, and then decide on what’s real and what’s imagined. Finally, somewhere in that confusion, the speaker’s relationship with herself and with the man whom she woke to find gone is revealed. [read & listen to poem]
