Week 10 of Syntax Sundays: Tara Abrahams

This Syntax Sundays features the poetry of Tara Abrahams, a Philosophy/English student attending U of T. The three pieces below are a part of her ongoing series, “Insects Are Just Like Us”. Her work draws connections between the human condition and the shifts of nature, intertwining the parallels between the use of space and sound in the world around us. The evident use of repetition in I’m A Shell, Mom and the elongated syllabic-sounds in Pesticide make the reader stretch and linger through the poetry, while Locust In My Heart truly captures this essence through its empty yet fleeting layout.
