Twin sisters turn to poetry to expose abuse and violence and explore solutions in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.
Two women use their poetry to focus attention on issues such as abuse and violence against women. This new book features poetic letters that aim to reveal personal experiences and push for change in individuals and society as a whole. The book’s final pages include the authors’ “prescription” for change in government that would lead to better laws to punish those responsible for what they call sexual reproductive terrorism, financial terrorism, emotional terrorism, mental terrorism, physical terrorism and religious terrorism.
In “46 Year Old Twin Virgins of America Speak Out: Poetic Letters to a Nation,” the authors use beautiful turns of phrase to portray the ugliness of abuse. In “Who Am I,” for instance, the narrator writes “I would never know I could be tomorrow’s child with an injury. Turned from within upside down; forced to confront the defect within, fearful of what as yet to come.” The selection “My Body” offers spirited words of resistance: “The life of my body is mines created by god, Stars of the universe’ slaves we are not!” Stunning photographs pair beautifully with the poetry, serving as visual representations of the emotions the letters evoke.
Author Fodeliah Castro Del Ruz is an artist and entrepreneur. Author Fidencia Castro Del Ruz, a military veteran, also is an artist. Both live in Charlotte.
