Featured Writer: Tamsen Grace



I had the best sex of my life

while going through cancer and divorce,

in spite of

my burned boobs,

Chemo brain

and hair that fell out in my hands…


(I thought I was ready for that one)


a friend had bought me a wig,

a blonde one

because she thought blondes had more fun

and obviously I needed some…


a gorgeous man

showed me

I was  beautiful


a warrior…

Wonder woman


The divorce mitigation

was on Valentine’s Day

The day before I had to shave my head

my husband laughed when he saw me

but I  didn’t cry….


Everyone speaks to me about karma

My sister calls down karma

like an avenging angel

invoking cancer

and burned testicles that fall off


I like to think of karma as a gorgeous man

who blew my mind

and showed me

I was wonder woman
