Abstract

Blueprints investigates what it means to occupy a place, whether wild or domestic. Personal, narrative poems on the loss and reconstruction of home are interwoven with collective, lyric poems exploring the archaeology of human shelter, nesting instincts in the animal kingdom, and desires for rootedness, connection, and security in an increasingly mobile culture. The collection bears in mind the original root of the word ecology--the Greek oikos, or house.
