I rarely write poetry nowadays.
The last time I wrote a poem, it was for a boy I had just met. He was leaving, I wanted him to have something of me to remember by etc. You know how that story goes. Especially if you are a poet, then you have definitely been in that boat at some point.
Most of my poems are personal. Some of them are political. While others are healing.
And then, there are those that are all three, like that sweet spot in a beautiful Venn diagram.
Two of my poems, “Badaun Sisters” and “Origa-me,” are in The Feminist Wire. You can read them here.
Also(!), The Feminist Wire happens to be one of the publications on my Top 30 list!
