GIRL TALK NO 28

you should know
I’m not talking
about him
anymore
I insisted
she kissed me and
laughed
and you should know
I’m onto
your bullshit
tell me
all about him
every dirty detail


April is National Poetry Month and even though I’m woefully behind on my goal to post a poem each day, I’m still enjoying myself. This exercise in my love of words began last year, inspired by the wondrous Jason Reynolds and my writing promptress Jena Schwartz. It was fun and full of magic and makes me so excited to see what pieces 2017 produces. They won’t be perfect, they never are, but they’ll be here, every day of April. I hope you stop by and enjoy the words and maybe even feel moved to share some of your own.
