Geographic Intersection: Urban Landscapes, the Natural World, and the Epiphanic Moment is a collection of poetry spanning my undergraduate and graduate career at California State University, Long Beach. The three-part structure of this work largely encapsulates the esthetic concerns and subject matter of my poetry. I investigate the way space is socially, culturally, and geopolitically rendered in an attempt to illuminate the (in)visible substructures and wilderness of urban environments. The natural world is also important to my work, functioning as a catalyst for the revelation and epiphany of existential and biological unity. The appendices are arranged so they seamlessly fluctuate between natural and urban environments, with attention paid to socioeconomic and cultural nuance throughout.
