Speak-House, by Carolina Ebeid

Wonderful new poem today. Well, it was actually published on Linebreak on Oct. 6th, but I am just now getting around to read it. Speak-House, by Carolina Ebeid. Check it out here. I encourage you to go out and read it. A very powerful poem. I want to quote from just one stanza to highlight the beauty of this poem.

"say something about yourself  
: I had a doll named January First
: her eyes were marble blue
: tip her back & they would shut
: like an ode to hinges, openclose
: a backslash ode
: stop/go     goodbye/hello"
