What We Buried
Poetry by Caitlyn Siehl
This book is a cemetery of truths buried alive. The light draws you in where you will find Caitlyn there digging. When you get close enough, she’ll lean in & whisper, Baby, buried things will surface no matter what, get to them before they get to you first. Her unbounded love will propel you to pick up a shovel & help— even though the only thing you want to do is kiss her lips, kiss her hands, kiss every one of her stretch marks & the fire that is raging in pit of her stomach. She’ll see your eyes made of devour & sadness, she’ll hug you & say, Baby, if you eat me alive, I will cut my way out of your stomach. Don’t let this be your funeral. Teach yourself to navigate the wound.
Caitlyn is primarily interested in healing. Growing up in a small town in New Jersey, she began writing poetry three years ago with the intention of bringing pain to the surface, of clawing through the dirt and excavating it before singing it to sleep. She tries to be gentle with what hurts, and it has helped.
Currently a student at Rutgers University, Caitlyn is studying film and journalism in the hopes of becoming a screenwriter.
At twenty years old, she is still growing. She has found her voice and it is a delicate thing, so she is happy to be sharing it.
