“Searching for Poems on Grief”
Collaborators’ Q&A: Poet Lisa Oritz: I assumed it would be a somber piece, but I like how non-literal it is. The abstract sculptures are photographed in matter-of-fact way that I find surprising and interesting. They are not sentimental images, and I appreciate that. Artist Kevin Morrow: What inspires me in this poem is its mystery, and coolness. I immediately felt objects were needed rather than image.
Poet Lisa Oritz has had poems appear in Zyzzyva, The Literary Review, Crab Creek Review and Comstock Review and have been featured on Verse Daily. Artist Kevin Morrow is a native of Wisconsin who received his BFA in sculpture from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2003.
