Specifically, Woolfit explores the relationship between faith and nature, which he links together with a single trope in Beauty Strip: a person’s hands. Hands that have blisters, burns, calluses, and ink stains. Hands that are thin, fear-infused, and called “good.” Hands that clench, point, cup, touch, branch, and hold. The hand is an archetype that can suggest power, influence, or action.
Throughout Woolfit’s work, faith is more than a belief and nature is more than an environment. They both require effort. His poems invite us to observe and engage with our own surroundings so as to experience a connection. Woolfit's words will be imprinted on your mind as he calls each of us to see and to act.
