Without You (Poetry Reading)

  Where does love come from? Where does it go? That crackling birth and monotone death Are we nothing more than lithium- batteries with an expiration What if our brains are slaveowners and love was never meant to be imprisoned?   [aio_button align="none" animation="none" color="green" size="small" icon="amazon" text="Buy From Amazon" relationship="dofollow" url="http://www.amazon.com/Love-Song-She-Sang-Cage/dp/0994240449/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1461205266&sr=8-1&keywords=love+is+a+song+she+sang+from+a+cage"]   [aio_button align="none" animation="none" color="red" size="small" icon="none" text="Buy Direct From Author" relationship="dofollow" url="http://www.biancabowers.com/store-2/"] If you’re interested in getting a signed copy, please shoot me an email here: contact@biancabowers.com ABOUT THE…

Artistic Integrity in a Digital World

  Good day all, I have written and published a new poetry book! It wasn't planned, just kinda happened. I wrote 2 poems a week apart in March, and then wrote an entire book over a 12 hour period. Cray cray, I know. But oh so good! It's called, Love Is A Song She Sang From A Cage, and, as the title suggests, it is a book of passionate love poems, that ultimately poses the following question: Where does love come from? Where…
