Response Poem: A Room So Still and Quiet/A.G. Diedericks

The Blood Into Ink Collective is deeply honored that A.G. Diedericks wrote a response poem to A Room So Still and Quiet It Hurts: A Collaboration of Warriors.

In a room so still and quiet

I still hear your music

composed posthumously

from your epitaph

lyrics written by all those

you’ve touched

hearts beating for the

sound of your drum

I long for the night, to hear

your soundtrack echo in my dreams

I know with the right

amount of encore you

might just come back

through our door


A.G. Diedericks is an aspiring poet/artist. He’s an avid sports fan
and a robust cinephile. He loves anything that’s well-written and
resides in Cape Town, S.A

  1. Thank you to the warrior sisters for this honour to appear on your page. To me the piece you all wrote felt like an olympic relay that just kept coming at you; I wanted to help keep the flame alive.
