's review

it was amazing

"I have ink but no pen, still
I dream that I can piss in God's eye.
I dream I'm a boy with a zipper.
It's so practical, la de dah.
the trouble with being a woman, Skeezix,
is being a little girl in the first place.
Not all the books of the world will change that.
I have swallowed an orange, being woman.
You have swallowed a ruler, being a man.
Yet waiting to die we are the same thing."

from "Hurry Up It's Time"

Holy fuck, this book slays.
