Melissa Lozada-Oliva – “We Play Would You Rather at the Galentine’s Day Party”

Performing at her book release in Minneapolis.

“Would you rather be completely covered in fur like head-to-toe, monster type of shit, or, stay with me, stay with me, be perfectly smoothy smooth, in all of the right places: thighs, crotch, armpits, upper-lip, neck? But here’s the caveat: all of the hair that would’ve grown in those places takes the form of a tail.”

Don’t miss this incredible poem from Melissa Lozada-Oliva, featuring at her book release party at Icehouse in Minneapolis.
