Nervio ptico es un viaje por el dolor lo efmero y las normas que nos deshumanizan Es un poemario que invita a la empata Un boleto de viaje a la incertidumbre a una oscuridad placentera a la que todos o muchos hemos viajado y por la que hemos ajustado la pupila para poder ver porque en el fondo por nuestra humanidad queremos observar y sentir lo oculto en un intento de alejarnos del sentimiento de querer ser como los dems de querer ser uno ms y al mismo tiempo sumergirnos en el miedo a ser juzgados el deseo y la culpa Es un llamado a ajustar nuestra mirada al mundo levantar la cabeza y aprender a conocer y a aceptar la realidad como individuos y como miembros de la sociedad por ms grotesca y repugnante que pueda llegar a ser Marjorie Ramrez Quevedo
