I share another poetic endeavour from Consequence Magazine, this time by writer Melissa Green. Above is the link to the poem titled INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE JOURNEY.
It is a work of great agency, epic yet intimate, packing in the expansiveness of the cold location and language, reveling in the peculiar, indomitable reserves of human spirit. So read it and imbibe its nuances.
Also the poem and author bio are from the Consequence Magazine web page.
