Skinner, Jeffrey T.
Original poems; Creative writing
For this thesis, I wrote 28 new pages, all composed between December, 2011 and March, 2012. They are the best I've written. The other five pages are drafts from work previously written in U of L Creative Writing workshops. My poems endeavor to realign the domestic into intimate, and occasionally surreal, poems. Of the topics that most often surface in these poems, anger and the attempt and failure of intimacy are premier throughout. I discovered in my writing new ways to manage my poems, as in "THE URN BUT NOT THE ASHES," which is a quick surreal sketch in which the narrative can elaborate itself with the heavy use of images.
