Things in Print Thursday :: what there should be less of in high school English class in haiku

17 Mar

Abuse victims’ tales
Should be told in their voices
Not a nearby guy’s.

POC stories
Should be told in their voices
Not some white folks’.

Queer characters? They
Should be more than sidelines in
Someone else’s book.

Women’s own voices
Should tell their own damn stories
(Women authors, too).

–your fangirl heroine.
