Abstract
“Undermeaning Where I Stand” is a collection of poetry about my childhood. I drew inspiration from Gaston Bachelard’s The Poetics of Space as well as the Creighton English Department’s “You Are Here” Conference, which focused on place, space, and embodiment. I started to consider the spaces and objects that I grew up in and around, wondering what stories they had to tell, including some small memories that surfaced when I inhabited these spaces. This inevitably led to the creation of this collection. The title comes from a common phrase my family says, “You undermeant what I stood,” usually used in conversation when someone corrects you after you misspoke. This is a homage to my family as well as myself because they are parts of the puzzle that makes up the beautiful picture that is my life.
