Bright Theater is a collection of poems divided into three parts. The first includes poems that explore themes of solipsism, the inherent distance between speaker and other. The second part addresses the idea of distance between the speaker and the divine, the perceived schism between the physical and the spiritual. The third and final part continues the exploration of distance, this time as a disconnect between the conscious Self and the physical body.
