Compilations

Newsletter

I’m interested in writing within the tensions of our humanity, holding space for the both and: our joy and our grief, beauty and brokenness, courage and fear, celebration and rage, and everything in between. 

My hope is that my writing has the ability to connect to what lies at the core of being human. Whether I am writing poetry, a newsletter, or an essay my writing aims to be honest, attentive, and centered around connection. May these words housed here connect and encourage you.

Comma Splice

An independent clause 

Dependent on the effect 

From an uncommon cause 

 

Met with 

A comma

And 

 

a pause 

 

Besides 

Another independent clause 

 

A comma splice 

Accommodating 

And 

Overcompensating 

For one’s need to stand 

On their own 

Constantly seeking to 

run on 

 

Run off 

 

Run from

The uncommon cause 

 

Period. 

 

Red remarks 

Combined with 

Shame 

 Jh

Rewritten 

To resist 

The temptation to place blame 

And to step away 

From the pain

 

An independent clause, 

Dependent on 

what comes after the pause 

Spliced 

By the grace 

To write again 

On the same page

Despite the 

Uncommon cause 

Remaining in its place

 

The effect of Grace 

Taking its place.
