A miracle is a shift in perception.
I Am Here navigates the vast, inner realms of a girl on the verge of womanhood. Using both stream-of-consciousness and the confessional mode, I Am Here attempts to merge the inner world with the outer world. From auras to iPhones, what emerges in this unique collection of poetry is a perspective that is bursting with introspective curiosity.
Ashley Opheim is a poet, editor, publisher and performer based in Montreal, Quebec. She is the founder and managing editor of Metatron Press. Her writing has been translated into Spanish and Romanian.

“A chaotic force of nature.”
“The collection moves from real to surreal all while maintaining a strong empathetic core.”
“like reading the confessions of a good friend.”
