Sisters, drop everything. Walk away from the lake, leaning on each other‘s shoulders when you need the support. Feel the contractions of another truth ready to be born: shame turned inside out is rage.
"too many grown-ups tell kids to follow
like that's going to get them somewhere
Auntie Laurie says follow your nightmares instead
cuz when you figure iht what's eating you alive
you can slay it."
-Laurie Halse Anderson from SHOUT.
