A Peek into the Mudroom

 Caity-Shea
An excerpt from the poem “Wedged.”


Can I still be my new self here,
freshly fired girl of clay,
or will their haunted silence crack me,
rip my stitches into fray.


You will experience more of this powerful poem of parental estrangement and escaping the cycle by Caity-Shea in February.
