Outsider's Lament
Fred Slusher

She says she painted her characters with a love

bent differently from your own and she is angry you think differently. 

She has been baptized in a familiar ocean while your love is

new water. 

No words bridge the divide.

Fred Slusher is a librarian and full-time student in Southeastern Kentucky. He writes poetry to understand himself and the world around him. He hopes that by asking his Questions now, he will someday live to understand some of his Answers.
