Could I Be Human?
This creative thesis is a collection of thirty-one poems written primarily in the first-person, lyric mode. This collection displays a focus on craft, specifically precision of image and language, while both exploring the author's internal process of coming out and examining the author's relationships to ideas of queerness, to their family, and to society at large. Through this dual focus on craft and theme, these poems form a cohesive manuscript, which is conscious of its place in the literary and larger worlds.
