About the Book

This book is a work of academic art. What does academic art mean? I use an arts-based research methodology from the social sciences to explore the question of identity, i.e. who am I? I argue in a non-linear way that I am being poetry, and invite you through an intersubjective and empathetic journey that you could be, becoming, being poetry, too.

If you have always been interested in knowing if you could be a poem, this book would benefit you. If you have ever wondered if the underlying structure of being is love, this book might also bring you some insights that could further your questioning. If you have never thought about the possibility of being poetry, but have always considered yourself a person that values love, truth, and even beauty above all, this book could also be for you. So if you are not still convincing if this book is for you, please go to the website to learn more about it.
