While poetry may be a form of communication in and of itself, these poems deal with the matter in broader terms.
Some of the poems deal with how one can feel overheard and invisible. With how depression affects one’s ability to express oneself. And some of the poems deal with how a person’s gender influences how other people speak to them.
Yet another – though related – topic is how difficult communication can be in general. This takes into account that everybody comes from different viewpoints.
Though the poet would like to offer encouragement, she finds it hard. That is considering how often she herself has been misunderstood. Also in her poetry.
