I’m sure you can feel it. The anger seething just beneath the surface. The anger of women who have been ignored, belittled, harassed, abused, assaulted, raped and the status quo has failed them time and time again.
If you can’t feel it, you must be living in a cave.
The swell is coming.
I’ve been told not to be too political on my blog because it will scare readers away. But if you read my work, you should already know where I stand. I hope you are voters, Readers. I hope you will vote next month and in two years and in two years after that. I hope you will vote in every election, no matter how small. Make your voices heard.
Let that rage fill you up and burst out in that voting booth.
I tend to fall to poetry when the need to express myself is greatest. Here’s one I wrote last night/this morning: Self Destruction.
With that, and my last cup of coffee, I’m off to write and edit for a bit. New book coming soon!
