As I work my way through MILK AND HONEY I wanted to provide a place to share favorite passages if you so desire. One of my favorite so far comes from pg 59:

"i do not want to have you
to fill the empty parts of me
i want to be full on my own
i want to be so complete
i could light a whole city
and then
i want to have you
cause the two of us combined
could set it on fire"

Debbie (debbie_sf) She has written a lot of beautiful poems, but the one that has stuck with me is:

i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you are more than that
