When we interviewed Amanda Spitfire and Roderick Thomas II about their work at Project SAFE in session 27 (A Solid Community of Humans) we also asked Amanda to recite some original poetry.
Amanda chose a couple of excerpts from an intense poem they wrote for March to End Rape Culture/Take Back the Night Philly. Their recitation went beyond the time we could offer in 1 session so we offer it here as a stand alone BONUS.
It is truly a BONUS to hear this!
With Amanda’s permission we shortened the title – the entire title of the poem is:
