why write?

I have to write what I hear in my head, what I dream in my sleep, what my bones ache to express.

My poems tell stories of strength, love, regret, disobedience, loss, hope, redemption, and whatever whispers to you.

—Cindy B. Stevens

riptide


Here are 6 lines from “riptide”, a Palindrome:

I drown me

dredged through salt storm
wrapped in squid
weightless
 
unspoken power
my temples tremble secrets
