Joe Phipps is a poet from southern West Virginia where he earned a BA in Creative Writing and Literary Studies from Marshall University. Joe uses his poetry to explore ideas like the liminality of loaned tools, people’s inability to visualize wolves, and other things his father describes as, “things he’s put a lot of effort into thinking about, even though they aren’t important whatsoever,” in an attempt to connect to something bigger. He just hasn’t quite settled on what something bigger is yet.
