Abstract

Before You Become Improbable is a poetry collection that tackles issues as various as marriage, parenting, death, art, illness, and the workplace, using a mixture of formal and experimental poetry. The collection eschews sections, instead letting the poems coalesce naturally around seasonal themes. Through attention to sound, image, and tone, the collection attempts to view the everyday and mundane through a more magical and surreal lens.
