Description

So much of "A Puzzle Is Still Made of Pieces" are the explorations of moments between Gillett and the city's inhabitants: lovers & heartbreak, the fear of lost connections and writing those demons out, speaking truth to power: "there is nothing to save here / there is only share / and try / and listen / and try again / and share / and listen / and speak / and try try try / if you get someone to hear you / then blow your fucking voice out / sometimes / it is better to speak in pain / than live in silence." "A Puzzle Is Still Made of Pieces" is a celebratory work by a luminous poet harnessing hope during these times where we are all trying to fit within the differences that hold us together.This is the first publication by Capturing Fire Press that publishes queer voices of the poetry slam.
