Mark Lipowicz’s Comments
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 hurricanes and other disasters. The truck poem, relationships
like walking on eggshells, but is there love behind them? Dolly,
thinking of the cloned sheep, and technology in our lives. It’s
but how much is enough?
