Three Poems at The Fem

There Was That Time Kenneth Didn’t Take No For an Answer, My Own Hands, and My Body Makes No Apologies for Itself are live at The Fem.

From There Was That Time Kenneth Didn’t Take No For an Answer:

“but he didn’t know that it was rape
because I wasn’t a banshee about it because I didn’t
keep shoving Because he had been there before…”

From My Own Hands:

“I didn’t grow you from kitchen scraps,
you’ve no roots or tendrils
Your body is not a bird your body
is not a viper You are mammal and

my own hands are first to catch you…”

From My Body Makes No Apologies for Itself:

“Pebble, moss, snail gloss
don’t shudder.
I walk into night with loose teeth, calloused fingers and feet, cunt made big
from birthing glistening babies both living and dead…”
