Loose Woman

Took off the halo

Like me better as myself

 

Loose woman

Heart wrapped tight

 

in delusion.  The wind

Heard kept secrets.

 

That shattered you

& your illusions

 

A lovely past

Passed away

 

Do you mourn my innocence?

I mourn your kindness.

 

Undeserving, home alone

His socks atop my fridge

 

Karma dripping

from my lids.

 


JGT is an artist and writer who is intrigued and inspired by the city of New Orleans. Stars and grandmothers are closest to her heart, but she usually ends up writing about men. She recently released a chapbook, Heartworm.  You can read more of her poetry here!  You can also see both Julia and her work featured in our recent piece on rising women poets in New Orleans!

Hey guys!

We’re so grateful to our friends, our families, our neighbors, and especially our readers for chipping in, sharing, and donating to the cause of local progressive media. Your support has lifted us up so much and will most assuredly not be lost or forgotten.

If you care about local independent progressive media in an era where multi-millionaires such as John Georges are monopolizing our local press, then please donate any amount you can to make our operation a success. We can do this! Do not give up.

What else can you do if you’ve already donated and can’t donate anymore? Share our content on Facebook and tell people about our fundraising operation. Call and email others who may be able to give. We believe in you because you believe in us and together we can ensure Big Easy Magazine becomes a progressive icon for New Orleans and an inspiration for the expansion of progressive media around the world.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
