Elizabeth P. Glixmans 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.
