Abstract: All My Ghosts is a collection of poems that looks to the past as a point of reference for imagination and speculation about death, loneliness, and hope. The collection is divided into three sections that, for the poems, represent a past, present, and future. The poems include meditations on death, geographic displacement, and a lost sense of place to create a sense of wandering, a tactile enjoyment and simultaneous bereavement of the human experience which is intrinsically embedded with the inability to hold on to life and insists we let go everything. The poems inhabit real and imagined spaces, just as the voices in these poems linger in the body or the mind asking what is real, and what is solid enough to cling to.
