K.N.Liddington on her poem ‘Hors Système’:
“This piece is a social commentary reacting to our desensitization, isolation, and misinformation. All such pieces are written with a view to expressing dissatisfaction with the faults of our society and encouraging readers to question our routines, our truths – for the hope of a better future.”
