Dahlia by Patricia Rezai
Dahlia is the second component of a poetic trilogy called Visual Sister. First came Olympia the beginning of self-voyeurism towards a dark melancholia. Dahlia born from Olympia over looks the transitory perspective of a healing heart that finds reconciliation from a phantom love she thought she had once sensed. Lost in softheartedness Dahlia’s poems postures itself on the brink of reprehensible reflections and desperate fascinations for emotional hunger. A dangerous craving which leads Dahlia into self-punishment and remorse after having wandered into a hallucination found in her Polyamory expedition.
