4/30: torrin a. greathouse
Starting today with a gut-punch, we are reading "Litany of Ordinary Violences" by torrin a. greathouse. This poem resonates with me as I've been unable to write, feeling that what I have to say, the different joys and griefs are not poem enough, but still are burning inside me.

Today, let it all out: the metaphors and memories your inner editor deemed as too "simple" too "trite" to "unpoetic." A litany of the ordinary.
