Surveillance Notes is a collection of poems, stories, and puzzles that explore a girl's closely surveilled and surveilling journey through childhood and incipient self-actualization. Surveillance is a multifaceted concept, invoking both the keen and curious observer as well as the insidious eye of a pervasive presence. For many, to surveil can also mean to protect, supervise, even express love. The line is slippery. This manuscript is divided into three sections: Origins, which deals with childhood and formative memories, In the Crosshairs, a brief experimental series rife with fraught familial dynamics, and Becoming, the speaker's attempts at emerging sovereignty and self-realization.
