“One of the most persistent lies is that boys are angry”

One of the most persistent lies is that boys are angry.

And the shadow lie: that girls aren’t angry.

But even though we aren’t formally trained to hate like boys are, every girl is a natural
expert:

We have so much to hate.

Listen:
A growl that tastes like blood

Black reservoir
Of anger splashing
Closer than you think
Beneath the slimy dock of everything I say
In my person voice
Nice woman voice
