“A Shout in the Street” is a poetry collection that seeks to explore the ways in which a lyric speaker determines their linguistic relationship to the world. The collection mediates between personal memory and external representations of beauty, searching for a connection, or at least an opening to constitute the self within. At the heart of this project is the speaker’s longing for that which cannot be named — a word, poem, or hand that lies just outside of reach.
