dc.description.abstract'Slips of Diction' strives to define the space that exists between what is said and what is left unsaid. These poems are about communication and the function of language in a postmodern aesthetic that attempts to express those things we know, as well as those things we don't know. The work collected here creates a dialogue between an 'I' and a 'you, ' while asserting that language is an imperfect means of expression. Science and art, admittance and denial, emotion and logic, drinking and driving, all coexist in this work and provide different avenues for exploration as the speaker searches for something constant in a world defined by inconsistencies. Ultimately, these poems try to create new space where meaningful communication can exist, while describing the tension that inevitably results.en_US
