Here is our friend Sara. You may have seen her in trailers for her acting debut in Toad Road. Although she has received a lot of attention for her acting, we know her as Sara Anne Jones the writer. Below are a couple poems from her book Ginger Ale, followed by a new one she sent us last week. We think she's such a badass.
From Ginger Ale...
"You're something.." I saidLooking to my left"Self loathing is a luxuryI don't always knowHow youGet away with it."You just smiledThat holy smileAnd youMade eye contact with thecute latino girlgazing at you from across the train.We should all be solucky.-When I am tired, I look like my Mother.When sitting in subway cars, my Father.When walking down 25th street, my Sister.And when alone, no one.
A sleepwalking pair of twilight kidsTheir breath shimmering like halosBought the village with theirCrimson high last night.Now, the avenue is splitHalf soldiers-Half demonsA lucky few still sleeping.And I, striking matches with all thefans pointed at me like cannonball fireCare far too littleWhich one I will become.
