Transient Light in an Empty Room is a collection of poems written during residency at California State University, Long Beach in the Master of Fine Arts - Creative Writing program from 2018 to 2020. The collection of poems is divided into three sections that are categorized by overlapping themes involving the mundane, the human psyche, and the ephemeral. These themes are explored through dichotomies that crack the lens of the human perception and sense of self. This is achieved through examining inner and outer worlds, both visually and psychologically, between light and darkness, set among solitude within the home or in isolation among the streets—examining the spectrum of human emotions, and how one’s internal weather is translated through different landscapes of time that evoke the happiness or suffering of the human mind.
