Abstract

Excavation, the process by which archeologists gather information, is the principle behind the composition of these poems— these are acts of imagination, of identification. In linking my singular life with the lives of others, I hope to tap into the common human yearning, to paraphrase my poem "The Fat Woman, " to be swallowed up by something, anything, bigger than ourselves.
