Through a collection of metaphors, all part of a bigger whole, Silence is Screaming speaks the unspeakable language of trauma. Fragmented, confused, visually striking, beautiful and painful, loud and silent. A poem soft and urgent both, a surge of meaning, jagged pieces in the mosaic of the Self, spiralling up and through the shattered realities of mind, brain and body.
