Forgiveness is Green is an ode to survivors. Sage weaves memories of pain around her identity as a lesbian and abuse with quiet contemplations of healing. This collection of poetry is electric in its versatility: from short punctual poems like "Flinch" to winding prose poems like "Dyke pt. 1," Sage reflects on her journey of healing and her thoughts around forgiveness to connect with other survivors and further validate their stories by sharing her own. It is a difficult but necessary ride that empowers every reader.
