“It’s an awful truth that suffering can deepen us, give a greater lustre to our colours, a richer resonance to our words. That is, if it doesn’t destroy us, if it doesn’t burn away the optimism and the spirit, the capacity for visions, and the respect for simple yet indispensable things.”
―Anne Rice, Queen of the Damned



by Carmen H Gray

Incongruous and jagged

Are just one way to describe

In this world so rabid

Your exceptionality

The beauty of the detour

From centrality

Every anomaly

Gives birth to curiousity

An unusual novelty

To inspect and understand

A four leaf clover

In a three leaf land
