1. DarcyShargo is a poet masquerading as a non-profit administrator. 2. DarcyShargo tells stories about the invisible. 3. Shargo remembers reading at an early age (around age 3) and then learning to write her name backwards and forwards shortly thereafter. But it wasn’t until words filled the whole page that Darcy felt as though she existed. 4. It is Darcy’s destiny to grow old early. 5. DarcyShargo has taken that inheritance with her to Maine, where she’s lived for almost 20 years, first with her husband and now with him and their 5 children. 6. Shargo, living a life where poetry is not central, feels it very important to return to the making of things that matter. She carries a body of shame. She carries hope, too. That her poems could help to meet others in places of uncertainty.
