Ann Staley

Ann is a poet recorded at Lewis & Clark College, in Portland, Oregon. She has the following to say about her poetry:

All my work is about what I don't know but wish I did, about building a trail of words from the girl who grew up in Green Acres toward the women with 65 stones on the fireplace mantle. I suspect that most beliefs are dangerously pattered illusions predictably apt to align with the reality of the worlds we dwell among. My primary intention, artistic and otherwise, is to be present in the moment we call Now.
