dc.description.abstract This manuscript offers a collection of poems that center around the first-person lyric. Interwoven, are themes and the aesthetic techniques that create imagery, and an experience for the reader. The poems are built for discovery, for the unveiling of the self. The importance of the poem is found within the diction. Each stanza is carefully considered, holding value to the individual word, line breaks, and white space. The manipulation of language allows the speaker to portray who the reader thinks the writer to be. Pardon My Society is written to impact the reader. The structure is built to enhance the metaphor and the voice of the speaker who is present. Themes within the poems uncover love, examine sexuality, with poems addressing societal issues, and the emotional concern of the family. The speaker’s voice is strong, and travels in and out of these contemporary pieces. Over the course of this manuscript, the reader will experience a battle with childhood, broken love and rebellion, female sexuality, and the everyday people we live amongst. en_US
