Two of my poems appear in Issue 3 of Hush Lit. It’s a beautiful poetry venue, and I’m glad to be a part of it.
“Anthills” recalls how my first reading of One Hundred Years of Solitude at seventeen informed how I behaved about romantic love for the rest of my life. I think most people have a story about the first time they read that novel. It’s powerful.
“Consent” is in honor of my daughters and the way they move in the world. The rising generation of women and girls take so little bullshit from men. I can’t read this one aloud without weeping.
Thanks for reading them, if you do.
