Broken Body Fragile Heart

Broken Body Fragile Heart

butterfly mockup 4BROKEN BODY FRAGILE HEART is an autobiographical exploration of fragility. These poems are about rebuilding body and mind alike: enshrining weakness in poetry to cover themes of faith, heartbreak, disability and identity. They’re about taking the dark moments of our lives and turning them into something creative, using art to reveal and reclaim a broken body and a fragile heart.

I’ve written about it here and here.
