You had the beginning of something in your hands

‘You haven’t slept in days, the ‘what ifs’ keeping you up. What if somebody listened; what if somebody helped. What if blood were an amorphous shape you could hold.’

Another woman like me – a new poem hits the web

Awkward admission number one: I might not have recognized Aziz Ansari’s face one week ago.

Awkward admission number two: I can’t forget it now.

If you’ve been living anywhere but under a rock, you have seen the news coming out about Aziz Ansari’s night of less-than-romance.

There are so many ways to respond. THIS POEM is just one.

Thank you to Val Tuck at Tuck Magazine for adding a #metoo reflection to their collection of incredible poetry, fiction, politics, and news.
