“Class Reunion” – Jessie Carty & Friends Perform a Poem from FAT GIRL

Here’s a taste of Jessie Carty’s forthcoming chapbook, Fat Girl, making her grand entrance on September 15 (Pre-orders begin August 1).  Thanks to Annmarie Lockhart and Elizabeth Stelling for the assist!

CLASS REUNION by Jessie Carty

So what if my stomach
is rounder than you remember
or that my hair is shorter?
I’m still me.

Don’t act like I’m different,
that I’m not the same girl
that let you . . .

Don’t look at me with that
face. You are no
more Helen than me.
