The Adjective Poem

pagan.
writer.
social justice warrior. feminist.*
girlfriend. partner. lover.
sex-positive.
survivor. fighter.
angry.
depressed.
hopeful. nihilist.
existentialist.
ferret lady.
environmentalist.
witch.
honor student. graduate.
socialist.
home-sick. wanderer.
occasionally found—more often lost.
i am more than the sum
of my labels.
as, i assume, you are, too?

*I should have specified intersectional feminist, but this is what happens when you don’t revise. Like…I totally forgot to include gender identity and sexuality in this, but remembered to include “ferret lady.” Revision: it’s important. :p

One thought on “The Adjective Poem

  1. I usually find myself over-reviewing until there is naught left of the core idea that I started out with and I end up reverting to the original, unreviewed version. Sometimes your raw thoughts are best left unaltered.
