The poems contained in this volume are conversations we could easily overlook in our rush to provide care.
Through my poems, I explore what it really means to be sick,
and what it means to be a provider, or a caregiver.
These poems are for people who have ever been unwell,
and for those who have never been sick.
This book is for people who love poetry,
and for those who wonder and doubt.
The poems are for people who think the healthcare system is fatally flawed,
and for those who serve in the system with dedication and love.
The book is for learners of the healthcare professions,
just as much as it is for teachers and practitioners.
These poems are for you...
