For me, poems are a window to understanding and appreciating experience, whether real or imagined. The one about the compass, I really do get lost every time I go to Seattle, the hills and the mysterious highway exits, to an extent that the places I get lost have become familiar, Tutwilla? The tsunami poem was not an actual experience when I wrote it; unfortunately since then many people suffered in a real tsunami, as well as hurricanes and other disasters. The truck poem, relationships can be like walking on eggshells, but is there love behind them? Dolly, I was thinking of the cloned sheep, and technology in our lives. It’s great but how much is enough?
