Change of Address

Deborah Paredez

About This Poem


"One of the things I've appreciated most about moving back to New York City is the regular proximity to strangers and the attendant set of relations and responsibilities it requires of us especially during such desperate times. I had the good fortune of reading some of Ross Gay's poetry while working on this poem, and I found his exquisitely unbounded syntax to be an inspiring model for capturing our connectedness and accountability to one another.
—Deborah Paredez
