    Amidst the Chatter

    I love the mood of this poem. You get a sense of personal experience, because she's drinking in someone's voice, really listening, really captivated by one person. I instantly had a picture in my head of what I would do. Initially I saw it as a couple, a young man and a young woman, and I saw these little cups scattered around. Some of the colors and furniture were inspired by a coffeehouse near campus --“Funk & Waffles.”

    The perspective was more of an experiment. In my head, I was seeing the room from overhead, because you'd be able to see more of what was on the tables. But the people -- I wanted to be able to show their faces and interactions. So I just drew it out and thought it would click.
