Abstract

In the Vatican Necropolis is a collection of poems exploring the process of living

excavation. It explores how we decide to narrate the pieces of our own lives, and the

myths we create from the bits of those people’s lives that have come before us. It

explores what we make of the stories we are told and how we fill in the gaps of what

we do not know. It meditates on relationships, family, death, and grief.
