Susan Hawthorne #117 write

write or die
wrote HD
and so I write
the names of the unremembered

I write of FannyAnne
dead because she cared
cared far too much
cared in public
for the demonised

I write of Consuelo
who writes her own words
like shrapnel to the heart
she survived
aganst all odds
she survived

I write of Christine
whose words took me on this journey
I know nothing more
she said simply
in this country
the word lesbian
could get you killed
