Patricia Dennis’ Mad Black Buddhist: E-Poetry is the account of experiences that the author had during the beginning of the year 2020, through the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, and how she choose to deal with those emotion. Using original images created through procreate, interactive slides through google slide, and instagram a social network, Mad Black Buddhist is a testimony of poems that helped Dennis express herself in ways she could not have.
Author’s Description: Mad Black Buddhist: E-Poetry was created from poems written within my Spring 2020 Advanced Poetry class with Dr. Susan Rich. Here I was able to express myself in ways I could not imagine doing. These poems are a testament of how I copped with my own emotion during the COVID-19 pandemic. My poems reflects my emotions and feelings that I dare not to face on a day to day basis. I decided that I wanted to share these poems, in hopes to share that it is okay to go through a whirlwind of emotions, while confined to one space. I created these images months after writing the poems to reflect on this period of time in my life. I have been able to face my inner thoughts with open arms and empathy for myself. I utilized the easy navigation of google slides to transfer my literary and artistic creations to others.
