Rippling Consciousness

By: Gervanna Stephens

Note from the author:

About the poems: I think of poetry as an adhoc version of the self & reality. These poems reflect that in some sense, where poetry is both space & the need to cling. It is dual & also singular. Just like mental health issues & the need for normalcy, both are magic & can be awful or be seen with new eyes or even be disregarded completely. It just depends.
