Official URL:


Imagined Sons explores a birthmother's consciousness through two series of poems: the eponymous prose poems, in which the birthmother meets her surrendered son once he comes of age, in a wide array of incarnations, including a criminal, a baker, and olive in her salad; and birthmother's catechisms, in which the same question recurs over time with different answers. Imagined Sons was shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry by The Poetry Society.
