BOOK | I Am Here | Ashley Opheim


I Am Here navigates the vast, internal realms of the human mind. Using both stream-of-consciousness and the confessional mode, this collection of poetry offers a perspective that is wrought with a depth of a feeling that is honest and curious.

Tracing the thoughts and feelings of a girl on the verge of womanhood, perils and triumphs are expressed. Absurd but beautiful ways of coping are revealed. Is it a glimmer of hope that emerges? Or is she part of a doomed, lost generation?
