Author Notes

"E 23rd St "

           This poem centers on the themes of self-hatred often caused by the outside world. Toni Morrison's novel, The Bluest Eye, was an inspiration for this poem with its themes of self-hatred, misplaced understanding of ugliness and beauty (which this poem also has as a theme) and inner racial turmoil, along with a photograph I had taken of my brother in Monterey. This was one of the few photo-poems I have done and hope to continue to do. Unfortunately I am unable to turn in the photo along with the poem.

"The Night-Artist's Paradella "

           This poem was rather spur-of-the-moment and took approximately forty minutes (first paradelle that I have ever written.) I wish I had time to read more Nabokov. He's beautiful. Or if not him, his writing. You pick.
