“Reading Between the Lines”
I have to say “I love you”
in a poem
you don’t read much poetry.
Sometimes we forget that when we say “I love you” to someone, it is life changing. It affirms and confirms what you feel and what will hopefully be reciprocated. But love can be two-faced and effacing.
Juliette Sebock’s microchap, Micro: a Microchapbook of Micropoems, is a down and dirty reminder that once you say those words, and once you commit to someone, and once it goes awry, you can rediscover yourself within the all the damage. You can come out on top. You can remember that no means no, and they should have stopped.
