PANEL

Coastal Poetics: Crafting Erosion and Absence

When poets live on a coast, they’re constantly observing change. Like life itself, what is landscape one day may be gone the next, swept away by storms or rhipped away, quietly and unseen. In these times of climate sickness, how do poets craft work about what will always, in a way, become either the absence or a source of the absence? Should they eulogize the coast? Should their work risk joy? Or are they required to medicate poems and aim them, arrows of foreshadowing, toward the chronically ill future? In other words, is the role of poets who live on dying coasts to give witness? If so, how do their poems reconcile and reflect these dichotomies—observation of loss, memorializing what’s left—in both content and form? Panelists, all widely published who live on coasts, read their work and discuss how writing in unstable environments is like moving through the stages of grief, considering whether they even have the choice but to gird their poems’ architecture with the stilts of dread, anger, urgency and mourning.
