A folio of visual or concrete poems on love, longing, healing, and hate.
Disturbing is built using words salvaged from the hull of a now broken relation-ship.
Remember, you cannot wish away the pain – you cannot forget it, burn it or bury it.
You can sit with it quietly. Hold it close. Wait for it to tell you what it must.
A few of the concrete poems were originally published in the Helter Skelter Anthology of New Writing Vol. 5. 2016. In 2019, Disturbing was presented as an art installation at the Futures of Sexuality Festival at TIFA Working Studios, Pune. In 2020, Won-Tolla press issued them as a limited edition folio, individually signed and numbered.
