Abstract

Confluence examines life experiences through the craft of poetry. This original work colors the author’s history with imagination, blending these two entities to create a separate and distinct story. The subject matter ranges from hippies to National Geographic to global warming. Themes of memory, addiction and recovery, domesticity and motherhood figure prominently in the work.
