Short Sisters” in Medical Literary Messenger, May 29, 2014
An artistic collaboration between my sister and me, exploring Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia (SED), a bone condition we’ve had since birth. SED causes a variety of issues, including short stature, scoliosis, chronic joint pain, neck instability, collagen deficiency and retinal detachment. We combined poetry and photography to provide a portrait of how SED affects the body and how the condition presents itself differently, even in sisters. The included poems are: “Short curve,” “Growth chart,” “Human growth,” “Cervical instability,” and “Scoliosis.”

First Place in the 2013 Jiménez-Porter Literary Prize Poetry Contest for “An invisible middle”
“The poem captures a very intense moment of choice and gradually peels back the occasion’s emotional layers—moving beneath the obvious tension, to show how there are even beloved things that must be abandoned in leaving a place of deep suffering. The poem also finds ways to make the ideas of separation and demarcation tactile by grounding them in human interaction and human memory.”
—Kyle Dargan, poetry judge for Litfest
