“A Discrete Hollow” is a collection of work that spans the past three years of my life. This project involves itself with the discussion of isolation, and our resulting growth as sentient humans; this is painted upon the Los Angeles cityscape. Within my project’s boundaries isolation resides in the banter of the cosmos as origin or expiry; in the anomaly of vagrancy; within a disjointed paternal and struggle for a permanent memory. These poems are shaped around the identity that is developed through separateness, and the reason discovered in uncertainty. This body of work is conjoined to Los Angeles as an inescapable coercion and background, and my poetry attempts to link identity through experience. This project is focused on the location of a unique self in a city that is founded upon facelessness.
