Voice is elusive, and voice is excess. The intrinsic and cultural pressure to speak and express one’s self through our voices produces a cacophony of emptiness which I attempt to capture through a visual poem. While voice is an essential vehicle for transporting information, it can also be used in excess, causing our voice to devalue itself and us, the speaker. The crux of my poem is a simple statement: “I don’t want me. I don’t want we.” That is the entirety of my message. However, through the countless you(s) and me(s), that clear idea is lost. A voice carries our intentions, but a voice muddles our ambitions. Through our voice, we allow ourselves to become vulnerable by exposing our ideas to the outside, and by doing so, we create excess in our thoughts and diminish our authenticity.
