Blank

Shhhhhh,
shhhhhh,
Shhhhhh.
Don’t tell.
Don’t yell.
Take this in your
mouth.

Take this in your
mouth.
This should
shut you up
for life.
In hell.





Here's my post for the Blank Noise Project Blogathon. It's not easy to talk about sexual harassment whether it's subtle or overt. There's almost always a sense of shame, guilt and fear that clings on for much much longer. But one has to talk. To scream. To shout. To protest. To not let it happen to someone else.

So few words. You always use very few words, but, the effect is as strong as lighting.

I am in love...... with your words.

I have always admired your writing style. You use the minimum of words to have the maximum effect.
This piece repulsed me. Brilliant writing!

Slainte!
