“I am a pitcher of blood shaped like a boy, and my father clenches a bowl as if he might smash my jaw, empty me and collect my fragments.”
I’ve never posted a duet (?) poem before, but I love this poem and it’s unflinchingly honest portrayal of domestic violence and its effects.
I couldn’t find any information on the poets in the video, which makes me a sad Kelsey. If anyone knows these two amazing wordsmiths information, please comment.
