June 24, 2017 – Ani DiFranco
I saw Ani DiFranco in concert a few years ago. She did a long spoken word piece. I fell in love. I bought her book. I read it often.
Day 23: Verses by Ani DiFranco
what dreams cause me
to abandon my pillow each night?
push away each of them in fact
since there always seem to be more than one.
and then wake to aching stiff neck twisted
tits and face smashed against the mattress
legs and arms akimbo
like the high pitched body of a jumper
waiting for her chalk outline
finally at rest.
