Acknowledgements is an attempt to work from personal gratitude toward more general expression. Employing a constraint in which the letters in loved ones' names serve as guide marks in the composition of aphorisms, the seeming truths generated encompass a wide range of topics including fashion, sexuality, politics, food, botanical observation, and more. The strictures determining this unlikely system of thought have provided a conflation of two voices, one capable of producing reflections that do not necessarily correspond to what either author thinks on their own (and a book that is indistinguishable from its acknowledgements section). Acknowledgements was written collaboratively with Brandon Wilner, published by Publication Studio Portland, and designed by Bryce Wilner. The book may be ordered here.
