feast correspond to a series of free verse poems reflecting on my spiritual and religious history. These poems are long, often with several sections which connect intuitively, chronicling moments of religious conviction – such as baptism – and the complex reasons why I chose to pass through such a ritual or not. I also examine everyday moments – such as a conversation with my husband about recycling – and draw out their significance. In doing so, I connect the sacred/secular divide, showing the unfaithful motivations behind some acts of faith, and the spiritual meaning in ordinary acts.
