Excerpt: Medusa, The Lost Daughter


From “The Eternal Sacrifice”

Truths presented cloaked in one’s omission

rarely remain hazy, but a puzzle

for the recipient to unlock, as

truth for the bearer recedes, clarity

in fragments will always surface in time.

Cast Out of Eden: Severing Roots

severing roots that were never fully connected,

ones that I thought that were a part of me.
