Abstract: A chapbook length collection of lyric poetry that explores the myth-making process through the tension of opposites: the nature of the substantive (body) and the ephemeral (mind), the wild vs. the tame self, the rational vs. the emotional mind. Incorporating traditional mythic figures, such as the goddesses of classical Greek mythology, these poems also incorporate myth into a contemporary voice in correlation with the self/'I' of the poem. This collection seeks to challenge the definitions of identity by merging the mind and the physical self, the artist and the individual, or even the logical mind and the emotional heart.
