The Heart is Not a Pump

December, 2017

The Heart is Not a Pump is a collection of poems that reads like a journal of confidences, mingled with poems that speak to the reverence of the human body and experience. From moments of heartache to ponderings on the physics of light and the beauty of anatomy, The Heart is Not a Pump traverses the everyday divine.
