It's just poetry, it won't bite

If you read Contributor Series 5: Dramatis Personae (and I’m sure you did), you will remember Karen Schindler’s poem Wonder. You might not know that she has a poem in Fag/Hag, the second title of Sibling Rivalry Press. Karen writes succinct poems that say a lot but use few words.

By Karen Schindler

The pain of
a heart broken

is worth
the experience

of a heart filled
to bursting

  4. Jean/Jeanette/bobbie,

    Thank you all so much for taking the time to comment. This poem is near and dear to me. The experience was recent, and it was worth it, but still working on the mending part.
