The long poem 24 hours is made up of twenty-four sections, each section consisting of twenty-four lines. This is a very different poem for me. Intellectually it came out of conversations about obsession I had been having with visual artists. Emotionally it’s one of my most personal poems, a poem about my own mental health, addictions, grief, and an attempt to understand myself through repetition. The first draft of the poem was written over a twenty-four hour period of insomnia, panic, and a kind of energetic wondering about the Self.
