Why is it

to inspire
my poetry

someone is either a lover
or dead?

Thank the universe
I have no dead lovers.


About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
