There is a place I can dwell – Jasper Kerkau‘s gorgeous piece on Sudden Denouement:
“There is a place I can dwell, removed from silent gore of emotional life tied to humid residue of lost summers. From failure springs the renewing waters of new worlds laid out–removed of the impurities of dysfunction, bad relationships, tarnished pasts, regressed lives spoiled under the hot sun. A celebration of life!”

All words lead to Love
And the poetry in the afterLove

That cannot be…

She says: “Be the one who cares, make words so disruptive that they create new worlds, hopes and dreams. Even if we are unhappy dinosaurs and find shelter in an Iron Tale or ruminate about feeling too much, whilst declaring colorless apparel, we should take power and strength from our stories.”
Her published poems can be found in The Sudden Denouement Anthology Volume I.
“There was a star riding through clouds one night, and I said to the star, “Consume me”.
– Virginia Woolf, The Waves, 1931
