"Their dated shoes are hidden in a cloud of grasses

Of the kind she’s holding in her hand."


On poetry:

"I have trouble making assertions and that’s why I write poetry. A lot of people are very drawn to poetry as they can make assertions I’m just very uncomfortable making categorical statements; making very descriptive statements…oh god what was the question again?"

Regarding her writing style, Jana commented that form was a way for her to say more, rather than less.

“I like ordinary days…on ordinary days I don’t need to think about things.”
