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! 

Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey y'all,

I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
Publisher
