Poet Christine Deavel On Being 'In Your Care'
Poet Christine Deavel trains her empathetic eye on two familiar places: North Seattle's Thornton Creek ("In Your Care") and the grocery store checkout line ("Each Day on the Verge").
As she transforms these places through unexpected language and imagery, she also holds open questions about what it means to be whole, to be a neighbor, to be in one another's care.
Deavel's debut collection "Woodnote" won the Washington State Book award and the Dorothy Brunsman Poetry Prize. Her work also appears in numerous literary journals, the chapbook "Box of Little Spruce," and "Looking Together: Writers on Art."
