bathtub poetry

I took a bath before to try to help with my fibromyalgia pain. I was reading a book called How Poetry Can Change Your Heart by Andrea Gibson and Megan Falley. I only got a few pages in when I realized I had a poem inside me, waiting to burst free. Luckily, I had my cell phone near the bathtub. I opened up my "Notes" app, where I regularly write poetry, and wrote this short poem. Do you ever write poetry in odd places?


We Will Not Be Silenced 

the stories they
whisper about 
behind the backs 
of the unfortunate 
protagonists are
the stories that
must be shouted aloud
in the most brash,
urgent way possible
