Poetry. Conceived as a series in five sets of twenty and written over the course of 12 years, WE PLIÉ enfolds a structure of a recurrent life very much in "the weighted west of I." The result, a totem of living and a cycle of crisis, love, joining and parting that matters, and disappears.
Patrick R. Phillips is also the author of Ruin, a book of poetry. He lives in the woods on Martha's Vineyard with his wife, Laurel Wilkinson, works at a local newspaper, the Martha's Vineyard Times, and is the director of an arts and social change nonprofit, Arts & Ideas.
