Poetry that is constructed of bits and pieces of relationship, vulnerability, love, narrative, images, bodies and longing while seeking to find understanding, or at least calm, amid the discordant endings and beginnings life provides. Full of striking and provocative writing at the internal and external edges of awareness.
The remnants of love and fragmented voices shape the narrative of Gary Lundy’s when voices detach themselves. You will be enthralled with Lundy’s lines. Each line constructed of images that breathe vulnerability onto the pages of a narrative that brings you in close to the voices of longing, and even closer to the voices and bodies trying to find harmony amid discord.
