Blood Tastes
 
I write both prose poems and in more traditional poetry forms.  Poetry, in all its forms, frees the writer from linear narration and the obligation to provide all the details, which more straightforward storytelling usually demands.  Much of my poetry explores the edges of anger, violence, oppression, and other more "gritty" subject matter.  Some of this work also speaks from a strongly-defined feminist standpoint. Note: If any piece I post may be "triggering," I will include a notice on the post.

Here's a short one:


Blood Tastes


Blood tastes like salt and sugar.

It tastes like hate

and truth.  This I do not forget.
