M.S. Lyle, a Lesley MFA in Poetry graduate and frequent contributor to the Universe is herself, small, but fierce. If she were her spirit animal, she’d be a heron…with ADHD. If she did the job she daydreams about the most, she’d be an architect…with spatial problems. If she were a place, she’d be Nebraska…with agoraphobia. Against the odds of all her internal rivalries, words; always, as far back as she can remember, there was sky and trees and words. What else can a disparate Nebraskan heron architect do with that but become a poet? Not much really – she tried being a dental assistant, actress, paralegal and sandwich maker, but she made a lovely mess of them all. Check out her daydreams, which include her own work, at http://exhalingpoetry.tumblr.com/.
