men come

and go. Your friends

stay. Women

stay. Mom

said. Perhaps

this is a story of

women raging against women; of

women loving

women; of

women listening to

women, because

men don’t have time

to, because

men move

on, because

men haven’t learned

how to

listen, to

speak as

women; so

the thread, the story


between women;

grandmothers, mothers, daughters,

the women

the thread of this
