I think it is important to write about us as human beings - to try and understand what is it like to be the most clever and yet inattentive of animals.
All of our stories, our hopes, feelings and fates are interwoven with a blue dot we are often too busy to think about. Writing and poetry gives us the space and time to think about the bigger things: why we are here; what we appreciate; who we really love.
It allows us to test revolutionary ideas, create worlds, expand perspectives, analyse outside of numbers. To express and be expressed through the greatest tool humanity has ever known: language.
