STATEMENT

If you experience a terrible event, you will slowly dilute it by writing about it.  But if you don’t write about it, it will slowly dilute you.  The poems here were begun years ago, have been revised to fit the occasion of the terribleness, and will be reincarnated into new terribleness in the future.
