A Lover’s Silence

Moving and haunting. You won’t soon forget this audio short poem! Author Julie Kusma’s poem shares the heart-crushing blow of a lover disappearing without warning or explanation. The video, created by Daniel Lacho of #GALECrew, weaves a modern-day Juliet vibe through the author’s words and creates a juxtaposition with this problem as old as time.
