Beating
by Mi-Mi Monahan

Some days 

my heart

is a woman 

in a straight jacket

beating herself 

against the padded walls

of my chest. 

On those days

I remind her 

there is freedom 



in making peace 

with yourself.


Mi-Mi Monahan is poet, doula, and energy worker from Los Angeles, CA. Her work reveals the perspective of a queer, femme, and sober young adult.
