Indelible: Preparation for the 3rd Annual Women's March / by Sarah Schwartz

“Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter.” -Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

(tw, assault)

Indelible

in the hippocampus

is the laughter

of beer soaked boys 

sweaty and fumbling their hands 

over hips, ass, 

breasts.

Indelible

in the hippocampus

is the laughter

behind the podium

“I don’t know, I don’t remember” 

the crowd goes wild

we crown him king

of all of the hands

that have pawed

between our legs.

Unzip me from my flesh 

so I can slip out of the soft 

folds of Woman like a 

little black dress.

Find me something 

with sharper edges

a body whose stories 

men believe.

See you Saturday at the Women’s March, Los Angeles.
