Now Available: Loved Always Tomorrow

Pic pick 1

Now available on Amazon.com and Createspace, Emily Bjustrom’s Loved Always Tomorrow.

About the collection:

Emily Bjustrom’s work applies truth like healing; the uncovered wound, the blood, the sting, the cool breath, the forehead kisses.
 
The most explicit topics are slid under our vulnerable doors with internal rhymes, consonance, and diction that soothes us into unlocking every lock. We let her in, not because we’re afraid she’ll break down our doors, but because we have to see the face tethered to a voice we know we could never live without.
 
Her sound is the sweet violin amidst burning buildings, the piano in the desert. Loved Always Tomorrow is our moment to smile a tear off our itching cheeks before returning to the rubble.
 
John S. Blake – Author of Beautifully Flawed, Pushcart Prize nominee, Teaching Artist
