The Kitchen Sink & Origin

A couple poems written for ENGL 383 with Pimone Triplett at UW.

The Kitchen Sink - Published in Bricolage Literary and Visual Arts Journal, 2016

“When it’s dark outside
And light inside,
Rather than stars,

Out the kitchen window
I see my own reflection
Standing over the sink,
Hands immersed

In gray soapy water,
Fumbling with sharp things
Out of sight…”

Origin

"A tension opens up
between two parting particles
stretching space, storing energy
elastically, in gravity’s cool tendrils..."
