Chapter 7: Light and Fog
This period started with me exploring a polyamorous relationship, and it ended with the relationship’s dissolution. Although it does chronicle some of the great joy and sadness I experienced during this time, this chapter of poems is more than just a documentation of history. During this period I experimented with new forms and techniques in my poetry, while I personally experimented with alternative relationship structures.
The excitement of this time was also temporarily soured by a pharmacological depression. At the end of this chapter, I said goodbye to some of the factors that had become a drain on not only my mental health, but of the health and well being of those that I loved as well. Although I do not care to believe in regret, I will say that the lessons I learned from the experiences of this chapter will never be forgotten.
A small gift
A new friend
A happy life.
