Yours truly ventured out to an open mic, with the support of two of dear friends. Despite how unwell I was feeling, my companions arranged for me to read my poems before I could retreat. This was only my second visit to an open mic poetry session, and I decided to read a personal favourite: Dear Charlotte Perkins Gilman. (Click on the link for the original poem and background.)
