sandra Kohler "I am obsessed with time and change, with the body, its powers and processes, with our consciousness of these fundamental aspects of our existence. What's changed most in my work, I think, are the parts of myself I can use as a poet. At thirty, emotions dominated--very little else about me was integral to the poems. Now that I'm in my midsixties, my poems draw upon intellectual, spiritual and political worlds (and the faculties with which I apprehend them) which I didn't know how to bring into a poem when I began to write seriously. I'm still learning how to write about certain things, not just the new that life always offers, but aspects of life that I don't yet know how to make into poems. I'm convinced that there's nothing per se that can't be part of a poem, if the maker is skilled enough." Sandra Kohler was born in New York City in 1940.
