Abstract: "Scavenger Hunt" is a collection of poems thematically linked by a single persona and the repeated development and deterioration of his failed relationships as a result of "White Knight Syndrome." White knights in this context are men and women who enter into relationships with damaged people in an attempt to save them. The stages of development and deterioration are based on principles from research in the fields of communication folklore and psychology. The collection seeks to merge the material and immaterial; it mixes concrete images a grounding narrative and the language of conversation with wildly juxtaposed images synaesthetic moments and layered or intentionally problematic syntax.
