Binary Numbers – Maria Gianna Iannucci

blood free

beyond birthing

she caught the nature

of beloved Soul

through the soft folds

of her humanity

an ancient banishing


where loss and belonging

ebb and flow

beneath the bridge

of being

nursing young and old

stella maris

rising from the grasp

of his quickening sea


beneath the clothes

of awakening

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
