CAROLYNE M.ACEN is a rising and prolific verses carver, literalist and spoken word artist. When you read through her lines you easily can easily fall from metaphorical seizures and allegoric epilepsy .Her poetry is heart throbbing and brain thumping . You need to armor yourself with poetry combat as you get trapped in the spiritual realms of poetic gods or goddesses . I want to say Acen’s verses flow rapidly like gushing river. Blood rippling.
