Abstract: The poems of this collection are intended to display, through dramatic monologues and family history, an array of personas and topics that would consider themselves unapologetic in their discussion. The style of each poem reinforces its theme and topic to create an atmosphere for the speaker, persona, or character in order to form a conversation between reader and author. These poems use colloquial language while drawing from traditional forms in their construction of white space and stanza formation. My techniques include surrealistic elements and dialogue that act as figuration for the larger themes that exist within these poems. The exploration of self becomes apparent from topic to topic while entertaining the reader with different, but connective interests, forming a thread for the narration to build and expand into larger truths.
