I See You by Margo Perin


Margo Perin’s book publications include The Opposite of Hollywood; Only the Dead Can Kill: Stories from Jail; and How I Learned to Cook & Other Writings on Complex Mother-Daughter Relationships. She is the poet of San Francisco’s public memorial Spiral of Gratitude and the Sonoma Area Coordinator for California Poets in the Schools. A nominee for the Pushcart Prize, Margo has been featured in national and international media, including Heyday/PEN’s Fightin’ Words, The San Francisco Chronicle Sunday Magazine, O, The Oprah Magazine, Mexico’s El Petit Journal, Holland’s Psycologie, and on TV and radio. The co-founder of Whoa Nelly Press, whose mission is to publish unheard, marginalized voices, Margo is an editor and teaches writing workshops, including in jails and prisons, in California, Mexico and Italy, and online at “I See You” is part of a series of poems about people who live in the shadows, with whom she feels a special affinity as the daughter of a criminal. With a father on the run from the FBI, she grew up with a false identity in five countries and two continents and lived on the margins until she found her true identity.
