Abstract

A Forecast is a manuscript of poems that explores themes of longing, loss, uncertainty, time, place, and love. The poems also attempt to explore and adorn these themes through inventiveness and imagination. While inhabiting this imaginative landscape, the poems play with notions of perception, acting as objective witnesses to very subjective persons, places, and things. These poems are held together by their movement through stasis, fascination with weather, seasons, and the future, and the fragmented yet illuminated spaces they occupy, where the extraordinary seems ordinary and the ordinary seems extraordinary. What results is a series of explorations through a dreamlike world, led by a voice who wonders, hesitates, and hides, all the while trying to say something, to shape the world and tug you into it.
