Marilyn Rea Beyer, Writer/Voiceover - Words have power.
IndieBlu(e) Poetry Anthology

We Will Not be Silenced  ... contains three of my poems and hundreds of others by writers I admire. Now in print and Kindle on amazon.com.

Subtitled "The Lived Experience of Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault Told Powerfully through Poetry, Prose, Essay and Art," this book is neither screed nor pity party. Rather, it’s a positive, powerful platform to give voice to people who have been sexually exploited, abused, treated as invisible.Listen and believe them.

Some seasonal poems:
Here's something from my notebook:

Freedom is not a cherry tomato
 
You cannot pop it into your mouth
whole,
 
anymore than you can eat an orange
in one bite.
 
That would be too big, too bitter.
It would gag you.
 
You need to dig into it
with your fingernails.
 
Peel away the shiny, oily skin.
Discard the rind you cannot eat.
 
Even then, you must take it
one section at a time.
 
Then, sink your teeth into
the juicy pulp.
 
Take care not to choke
on the seeds.


Automemorabilia 1967

Avanti
Barracuda
Corvair

Dream rides of unusual shape and proportion
Colors from Wonderland or Oz
With ragtops for the days we didn’t care about our hair.

Ventura
Rocket 88
Torino

More muscular than the boys who drove them
With waterfall grills and
Bullet taillights.

None of them could keep up with me.
I drove a Wildcat.
