Welcome to Ordinary Plots: Meditations on Poems + Verse.

Posting the occasional poem and the occasional meditation on that poem.

Every so often, I’ll post a poem on here, along with some brief thoughts on that poem. A lot of my thoughts revolve around the same things: wonder, ordinariness, light, and whatever exists in tangent to these things. Thank you for following along.
