I am forever grappling with addiction and self destruction. Some days I have to recite, watch and listen to this poem to try and invite the list of 10 truths back into my body.
The Ritual by Denise Jolly
Careful where you laze in misogyny,
It is a passing gun
pointed into the hearts of femmes
who have a want for loving.
The TSA catches a lot of flak: While the agency subjects airline passengers to invasive scans and body searchers, even the American government has serious doubts that air travel has become significantly safer.

Jada’s case shares an eerie similarity to last year’s Steubenville rape case. That incident, too, involved the assault of a teenage girl, and that case, too, saw photos and videos of the unconscious girl spread like wildfire across the Web.
But unlike the Steubenville case, to which the reactions ranged from disturbing to downright egregious, Jada’s story is receiving an overwhelming outpouring of support. While the initial purpose of #jadapose was to make a mockery of a young girl’s sexual assault, her supporters have come out in droves to back her.
August 5th-9th we are hosting 500 spoken words artists from all over the US & Canada for the 25th Annual National Poetry Slam in Oakland, CA!!!! #npsoak2014 #nps #slam #poetry #bayarealiving #joycelee
