Happy day twenty of poetry month! There’s ten days left which means there’s one more poetess to feature. As well as four more individual poets to feature over the weekend.

In the meantime, I hope you’ll enjoy today’s poem by Elizabeth Acevedo. These lines gave me the chills:

Do you know how many years

Women like me have been

equally afraid of both

Hangings and hangers

An Open Letter to the Protestors Outside the Planned Parenthood
