Abstract

Lessons in Patience is an original poetry collection. A manuscript of confessional poetry, these poems consider how loss manifests itself – physically, interpersonally, and emotionally – through the lives of three women. To effectively consider these three perspectives, the manuscript became a study in persona, inspired principally by Jane Wong’s collection Overpour and Victoria Chang’s collection Barbie Chang.
