New Poetry book “Cracked Around the Edges” from Lily Maureen O’Nan (info from Lulu site)

How would you like to explore a poetry chapbook that has one part written from a psychedelic landscape, and another part that has more of mental health-related themes? Then this is the book for you. Written by the multiply neurodivergent, queer, nonbinary Lily Maureen O’Nan, this chapbook of poetry is their first to ever be published in any form, despite years of writing. It covers the timespan of 2015-2016 in the first part and the year of 2019 in the second part. Be prepared for an interdimensional exploration of the mind of someone who has been through years of trauma, and has gone into remission for the most part from C-PTSD, and is also autistic and on the ADHD and bipolar spectrums.

New poem by Lily Maureen O’Nan

Untitled

Cough, cough.
Where did the light go,
Or what,
Does it really do,
For a mind on chaos,
Drugs?
You said to me,
"Don't go sideways,"
But I slid.
I fell, I stumbled.
Fuck our little, 
Bubble.
Polarized images seek,
To create a society,
Of death,
A culture of depravity.
All I'm left with,
Is thought,
And perceptual discord.


*a poem about psychiatric medication and relapse*
