Forks to the Forehead

Kerstin Parmley, University of Missouri-St. Louis


Forks to the Forehead is a collection of poems that explore how truth heralds awareness and vice versa. In this collection I attempt to move towards the difficult and nebulous possibility of describing truths through the use of abstract art, translation, testimony, introspection, and cosmology to spark the brain's neuroplasticity by activation of left and right brain connectivity in effort to redefine personal reality and achieve clarity, though not always pleasant.
