Return- Introducing Anthony “Grumpy” Gorman

willed, sordid
relics of infant’s

to ink-toothed
creep, buds sealed
with cement-

thrusting gilded
spade into fermented

grace trickles
out blue blooms of
warm wounds.

Grumpy Gorman is a writer and visual artist with extensive lived trauma.  He’s worked in the field of Mental Health and addictions in crisis management.  Much of his writing helps with processing the absorbed horrors and sorrows experienced vicariously through the recounts of resilient and amazing clients. Additionally, he lives with the daily splendors and burdens of his own bipolar disorder.  With a fervor for micropoetry, poetry his writing strives to back big emotions into small clusters of words. Grumpy is privileged to share with you. You can read more of his writing at Hands in the Garden
