Grey Matter: because it’s not all black and white…

“Words can be like X-rays if you use them properly — they’ll go through anything. You read and you’re pierced.”
— --Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

Poetry is a means for us to examine the world around us as it affects our individual lives and the lives of others on a deeper, more vulnerable level. On our journeys through healthcare, it is important to step back and reflect upon the ways in which our world views may be changing, shifting, and expanding. We would like to house these journeys here in a space dedicated to promoting the deep contemplation of poetry.

Submissions are welcome from all members of the PBC community and will be categorized in one of the following:

  • Life As It Was: poems that reflect upon the past and who we once were

  • Life As It Is: poems that analyze and explore the current human condition

  • Life As It Will Be: poems based in anticipation of what the future holds

  • Narrative Poetry: poems that employ a linear storytelling structure based around a moment of change
