Care [Spoken]

Last week, I wrote a post about caring. It had been burning a hole in my brain all day, and I scribbled it on the back of two different sets of notes and left me fidgeting in class. When it published, about half the comments were “This is Bad. You should feel Bad.” But then everything was alright, because Alex Gabriel at Heresy Club surprised me by performing it. This is almost exactly how it sounded in my head.

A friend described it as “slam poetry meets absurdism meets second-wave feminist care ethics”. I’ve no idea if that’s right, but I love it.

    Did not see, and therefore didn’t have an opinion on your original post, but this spoken version is wonderful! Thank you.
