Published in 2012 by UNO Press as part of their Contemporary Poetry Series, Makebelieve is a multi-genre & mixed media archive of memory, tall tales, & poetic collage. As with a treasure chest, one must sift through this work and the ephemera it collects, in order to transcribe the aggregated stories of its contents — the landscapes are real & imagined, past & present, finite & infinite. Part historical fiction, part diaristic exposé, & part philosophical love affair, Makebelieve is less categorically a book and more simply a rhythm that speaks to the underlying and insatiable state of human desire.
