In these handwritten drafts of a poem titled "The Outer Banks," one begins to see the framework of the finished poem. Gone are the overt references to specific assassinations, such as Whitman's lilacs in commemoration of Lincoln's death and the image of Robert Kennedy's funeral train. Instead, the poem is framed with the speaks descent to the Outer Banks and her realization that "we must build more on less," arising out of a more generalized sense of loss and dissolution.
