Meanwhile Poems

Meanwhile Poems

Meanwhile is a collection of poems that explores the light and shadow of the everyday: the quiet anxiety that plays out on the bedroom ceiling moments before sleep, the forgetfulness that lingers in doorways, the loneliness of clothes on the laundry line begging for the meaning of 'clean', the way changing seasons evoke memories of long ago winters as though they were about to repeat themselves.

If our more dramatic moments are beads on a necklace, Meanwhile concerns itself with the thread that connects them. Sometimes it is soft, silken. Sometimes it pulls and tightens around your neck. A beloved heirloom. A pretty noose. Because sometimes the ordinary is far from mundane.
