About Me
I'm Mary, or Jessica, whichever you might prefer.  I'm married, living happily with my husband, the owner of seven cats and a turtle, and the writer of a great deal of highly metaphorical poetry.
I write a lot of form poetry, especially sonnets; I struggle with free verse, although I continue to try.  My poems tend to have strict meter, and I'm overly fond of iambic pentameter.  I usually write poetry to express personal tragedy, so it's not often happy.
