“She found that, unlike other forms of writing, poetry had an efficiency and raw honesty that made it a fitting outlet for her observations as a trauma nurse. She says that writing allowed her to acknowledge her darker experiences in the ER while also taking care of herself.”

There is an affliction in the air

Even the snowflakes fall like ash

She washes her hands”
