Kyrie's School Blues

“As she sang the notes, the lyrics and rhythms safely delivered her to a peaceful place outside of herself, a conduit for her pain and the forceps for the pleasure deep within her and coaxed out through her song. Singing was God’s way of speaking to her, shielding her, keeping her, loving her.”
