“Lying is the work of people who are told their truths have no value.
The labour of survival is laden with myth and misunderstanding.
Silence is the work of people who can't comprehend that change is possible.”
Amber Dawn, How Poetry Saved My Life: A Hustler's Memoir

“Morning came in through the blinds cutting everything into ribbons.”
Amber Dawn, Sub Rosa

“When he did appear his eyes were as brown as I remembered, pupils flecked with gold like beach pebbles.”
Amber Dawn, Sub Rosa
