Kae's Story:

The poem I wrote is entitled "Benches" because my ex and I would have discussion on varying benches throughout UNCW's campus. The benches map some of the ups and downs in our relationship. For my medium, I chose to convey it through poetry because I feel that I can reveal my inner truth best through language. I like the specificity of word choice. The words identify my personal truth and I hope that some readers can relate.
