Abstract

My image and text poetry manuscript takes a documentary approach to examining my sect of gearheads in the south Texas region to understand not only their relationship to their own vehicles but also their self-identification as gearheads. This thesis combines poetry, photography, and automotive mechanics which creates poetry reflecting the gearhead experience. Influenced by past poets such as Muriel Rukeyser, Charles Olson, and William Carlos Williams along with contemporary poets Mark Nowak, Amy England, and Jena Osman, my poetry represents my niche group of gearheads.
