The Poetry Society of America's "In Their Own Words" Feature

The Poetry Society of America’s “In Their Own Words” feature provides a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a recently published poem. I’m thankful to Brett Fletcher Lauer for inviting me to write for PSA and for the chance to think a little harder about my poem “To Assemble This Poem Properly,” which appears in my new collection, The Identity Thief.
