• Noshem Wearzen: a dream inspired poetry collection

      Hager, Robyn (2022-05)
      Noshem Wearzen is a made-up name for the places that we go to in our dreams. It is, literally, ‘nowhere’, as our dream landscapes are equally inspired by real life as they are projected to us in a fictionalized way, making them ‘nowhere’ in particular, but in an attempt to give a name to the places that we escape to in our dreams I’ve created Noshem Wearzen, a place that occupies as much of my dream world as it does my reality. The first poem of my collection is Noshem Wearzen and precedes the two parts, it functions as the beginning to a story that ends with each poem that proceeds it in the collection, which is emphasized by the lack of end punctuation in Noshem Wearzen while each other poem ends with a period.
