“Poetry is an antidote to the poison level at which we often consent to live. We are, many of us, amnesiacs. We forget the amazing things that happen to us. Poetry remembers them. Also, what is given shared articulation can never hurt so much as whatever remains unuttered.”

    “Also, what is given shared articulation can never hurt so much as whatever remains unuttered.”

    Tell that to my brother, who wants nothing more than my silence on issues pertaining to my family.

    Another awesome quote. I wish I had said it:) I love the phrase “shared articulation.” That is so true.

    Oh, what a beautiful quote, Michelle- “We are, many of us, amnesiacs. We forget the amazing things that happen to us. Poetry remembers them.”- and so true. I think this is why I write my poetry…❤

    Yes, good quote – “antidote to the poison level at which we often consent to live.” Terrific.

    I’ve met her a few times and she is a very nice person. Fine poet too.
