Bio for 2024

Mary is a Kentucky native who enjoys poetry. She believes poetry is a unique channel that takes the human experience and rinses it over and over until it has reached a pure definiteness. This final resting state conveys the felt experience to anyone who reads it. Everyone is an artist, and therefore everyone, by virtue of being alive, performs the alchemy of poetry.
