Naima Alam is a confessional poet stirred into writing by her love for all things ominous, ambiguous, and confusing. Her respect for poetry was awakened by all whimsical ingredients of the written and spoken word. Her poetry is a fusion of mystical spirituality, teeny-bopper playful crush stories, magical imaginings, and dreams of an idealistic Bohemian love. Through her verse, we experience the flight in her mind's eye as she visualizes herself as an unruly, defiant adventurer wading through the muddy backwoods of love, she herself an embodiment of haze, anticipation, and heart, unconcerned with disapproval and sometimes with reality.
