Diacritical marks, when attached to a letter, serve to change the sound value of that letter, and by logical extension, the word. With Diacritics of Desire, the intention was to create a meta-ish poetic collection, something which is in and of language; something which traverses the spectrum of varied emotions, sometimes with a linguistic looking-glass, be it the Semantics of Longing, or the more rooted emotions occupying the vowel-chasm between the soul and the soil. The result is this oddball word-mixture of nouns and pronouns in rustic mother tongues, the secret chanting of old magic practiced by grandmothers, the language of our relationship with our bodies, and the language of prayers and politics.
