Abstract

In this preface, I will highlight other readings and poems that further illustrate this basket weaving technique in which I imagine the river reeds, or the materials that encompass the works of the poems herein, to include: 1) em dashes, 2) forms of narrative point of view, in conversation with narrative self, and in dialogue with others, 3) fill-in-the-blank styles, 4) enjambments that can break the line, and the sentence, towards sexuality, 5) mixing of mediums, and 6) poetic images of the female body in separation, and in unifying collision, with other bodies. It is my hope that these materials, once fitted together, become a harmonious artifact that harkens to Beckâ??s exploration of racial, social, and familial boundaries.
