In answer to our question of why she writes, Aleah responded: “I’m motivated by universal themes: loss, love, commitment, regret, rage, memory, nostalgia, etc., and how people respond to and gravitate towards these themes. Poetry has always appealed to me in that it is so visceral; it tells an image-filled, meaningful story without relying on all the word ‘clutter.’”
