Elizabeth P. Glixman’s Comments

Everyone has moments in life where they deal with their own inner contradictions, self-betrayal, and disappointments. The narrators and supporting players in these poems tell the stories of such moments.

I find poetry a great vehicle to tell narratives. In telling narratives, for me, there is an affirmation of human existence.

I am inspired by this quote:

“I will tell you something about stories …
They aren't just entertainment.
Don't be fooled.
They are all we have, you see,
All we have to fight off
illness and death.”
—Leslie Marmon Silko
