Poem of the Day – Staircase – Andrea Gibson

This is personally one of my favorite poems, Andrea Gibson has a way with words. She pulls you in on her journey, using words in a way I have never come across before. This poem moves fast, within this poem there are separate narratives running throughout it, several emotions, honest emotions.

Gibson’s poems almost always involve her, she lays herself bare and I think that is brave. Which is maybe why I admire her so much. This poem builds such a clear image, I personally can see this poem play like a film in my mind. I think this is because Gibson’s voice is strong and carries each sentence like the last, filled with emotion and compassion.The accompany music fits perfectly, rounding it all off nicely. I truly adore this poem.
