Re: Why Afghan Women Risk Death to Write Poetry


Ask me again why I so dis the American poetry scene. This kind of heroic insistence is real to me. To have a voice, to be heard, to love, to want, to insist. That is real to me. The American scene, self-infatuated, is not. And let me be quite clear. Self-diddling in America is as pervasive among women poets as among the men.

Yes, I thought that might be your reaction, Tere. I was going to post this link in your "This is this and and that is that" thread, but decided this was a better place for it.

You're smarter than the average she bear, Kat. Pretty faces attached to a word don't do nothing for me. This experience does.
