Her clothes are based on a 1918 walking suit, if you want to know.

“For me, the prose poem offers a pathway into the subconscious, with its unexpected quick cast, costume, and landscape changes. With its startling juxtapositions, irrational situations, and dark humor. With its encounters with the everyday and the inexplicable—where these often intertwine. Verse keeps trying to shed the unpoetic detail […] while the prose poem thrives on specificity and the tangential (or what appears tangential).
For me, the verse poem employs a fastidious bouncer, choosey about who will be allowed in, while the prose poem is a shark. It swallows everything. Including, at times, me.”
