THE RETURNS, a poem by Jenny Montgomery, Featured on Life As Activism • Cleaver Magazine
I’m a prairie mongrel, not a signal I’m a tethered satellite, never floating away I’m Florida, I’m underperforming I’m drinking refined, not eating my white valley I’m neck and neck I’m not anymore I’m a cliché, not a rishi I’m the boy crying, I forgive him I’m a raving bitch not the interpreter screaming, I love you
