If you haven't heard, Nish Weiseth is back in business with Stories From Exile, a writer's collaborative bringing you stories written by outsiders in Christianity, politics, and culture. This project has already been a balm to my soul during these trying times, and I can't wait to see where it goes. Head on over, and check out my latest piece, Rules.
Keep your legs shut, you are only as good
as the parts you keep covered up
only as pure as what hasn’t been
touched, won’t you tell me again
the rules for my body?
Tell me how I should
be treated with respect, unless
a Supreme Court Justice is on the table
until, you have to treat them like shit
won a primary,
just locker room talk became the
unrepentant prayer that covered
a multitude of sins.
