Sorry the brief hiatus- a bad flu bug is no joke when 7 months pregnant! Anyway, back to the poetry!
Poem: “Talking Back to the Mad World” by Sarah C Harwell
Source: Poetry Foundation
Favorite Line/Phrase: “I love/ the tattered/ camisole of/ nothing.”
Response: The past few days have been a blur of fever and sleep. And then the guilt of not executing all that the days require. And then I find a poem like this. A poem of rough and “lazy. garbagey magic.” Sometimes, the right poem feels like it is written just for us.
