My thesis is split into three sections of poetry. “El Dorado Hills” is about the joys of the childhood trauma we all go through (heightened by having a mentally ill parent), specifically within the apartment complex my family lived in while I was in elementary school. “I’ll Send Fish” focuses in on my obsession with many forms of water – the ocean, snow, ice, etc – and some of the creatures that live in it. The final section is a series of prose poems about the life and death of my ten year old nephew, Eythan, called “The Hiding Spot”. I’ll be hand-binding my work and also including a bit of art for the cover and to introduce each section.
