What surprising, fascinating stuff can you tell us about the origin, drafting, and/or final version of “Dawn”?

“Dawn” is from a larger project exploring notions of in-between-ness. With it I’d hoped to examine the residues of a dream – a kind of awakening – and the emotional reflections-refractions we carry over from sleep. I’d never written a tryptic before and I love how the form allows for echoes, ripples, shimmers, etc. Now I’m hooked!
