I cry a lot. And write a lot of actual letters to my so-called representatives. I’m afraid I’m probably too angry… but that anger is in me from childhood experiences that turned me, body and soul, against — rather specifically — rich, old, white men. Now they run the damn country. The best response I can squeeze out is the occasional wry smile when I see one of them fuck up.
It’s funny, too, because I’ve approached my body about letting that go and she just does not want to. It’s taken a little of the edge off… but that as far as she’s willing to go.
