I Am Here

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.
