Welcome writer and poet Miles Hitchcock, who comes to us from Perth in Western Australia. Synkroniciti is pleased to feature two of his poems, “Autopilot” and “Arguments.” The first is an open-eyed contemplation of human existence, the second an appeal for harmony and personal growth. Perceptive and delightfully spare in style, these poems encourage the letting go of illusion and nonfunctional notions in order to learn how to be more human.
