Poetry. Solitude and memory teach an individual heart and body lessons of desire, persistence, survival and absence.
"Aletheia is a Greek word variously translated as 'unclosedness,' 'unconcealedness,' 'disclosure,' or 'truth.' All of these closely related meanings, and the differences among them, are the subject matter of Andrea Applebee's bright, burning poetry. 'To lightly touch the length of your cheek / as if it were water // time, good luck, bad. What does it matter / to us, in the late light—'" —John Ashberry
