Abstract

ABSTRACT OF THE THESIS

meat

By

Husayn Burris Carnegie

Master of Fine Arts in English

University of California, Irvine, 2016

Professor Michael Ryan, Chair

I write poems because I am sad. I write poems because I think that all of us are sad, are inherently sad, and have precious few tools to cope with this. Which is not to say this text is an exploration of the human condition of sadness, but rather, that this is a text filled with sad poems. I wrote these poems by looking inward first, then by looking outward. What follows is what I saw. I do not know if these are good poems or if these are bad poems, but they are surely sad poems. They are my poems and they have helped to keep me here.
