Poet Showcase. Wanda Deglane.

Hello!

I hope your week is going smoothly so far. I want to share with you a poet that is relatively new to me, Wanda Deglane. In her debut collection of poetry Rainlily she writes about the journey of healing from sexual assault. Something I am experiencing myself. Her poetry really is powerful, and raw.

Inside the Bell Jar Ghost Girl

Dodging the Rain In my Defense

You scrape yourself off your bed in the morning
And slog aimlessly through your day.
At night, you dance around your memories,
Letting them slip through your fingers
Again and again, hoping this time they don’t
Bubble back up to the surface, stinging and hissing
And if you touch them they’ll explode like firecrackers
Right in your hand.

Terse Journal Out-of-Body

Porridge Reporting a two-year-old Sexual Assault

The Regal Fox Love after the Storm

POETRY IS HARD WITH KITTENS

Selected Poems by Martin Appleby

Worse things Happen at Sea

I don’t understand everything

and I will never pretend to

You’ve been through things

that no one should ever experience

You say I am a good boyfriend

because I don’t hit you

That isn’t a very high bar

That is a very fucking low bar

(a kitten wrote that)

We live together

and we have kittens

and I’m funny

when I’m drunk

But I am terrified

of what happens next

When the booze

is no longer a joke

When not hitting you

is not enough
