Abstract

These poems and stories, at their most basic level explore the role of secrets in the relationships of family, friends and one's own relationship to his or her self. The ways in which secrets define people more than the things they would willing share, how we compartmentalize our secrets and ultimately the way relationships and perceptions are forever altered after a secret has been revealed.
