My wife is shaped like I married
a man, not a memorial. Not a headline.
Not another Facebook movement.
She is shaped like don‘t you dare. Don‘t you dare bleed out
in some car they don‘t think you deserve. Or
on some asphalt so hungry for your bones.
My wife is shaped like you make it home.
You make it home.

My father grew up in Ohio and doesn‘t understand why the South is supposed to scare him.

I loved this poetic memoir from the author of Speak. She shares her difficult childhood and in doing so exposes her parents inadequacies. She goes on to prove her father's advice, “...we must be gentle with the living, but the dead own their truth and are fearless.” Themes reveal truths of rape/sexual assault, classism, poverty, addiction, trauma and triumph.

A poem is like a book. There‘s a right time for you to read it. As with many poetry collections, in this I found some poems that didn‘t do anything for me but many others that spoke to me. “forty-five thought for my daughter...” was my favorite.

For my first book of #24in48 I went for short but devastating. I did not love the first half as much as the second but tears were definitely shed while reading this.

RebL I just listened to the Overdue podcast on this one. I forgot about a lot of the truly high school stuff in it like the cheerleaders‘ Hornet cheer. 11h

It's time for the #24in48 #readathon! I'm starting off by finishing up SPLIT TOOTH by #Inuk #throatsinger Tanya Tagaq. I have only about an hour left, and let me just say, this #audiobook has been a listening experience unlike any other. 💙 #nativeauthor #canadianauthor #nunavut #poetry #prose #fiction #memoir #24in48readathon #throatsinging
