Postcard face featuring a collage of images of plants and sheet music

You’re raw + real

Postcard verso, page left:

Dear Emily,

Here’s a letter to you they
can’t erase. They can’t cut
words out of it. Burn it.
Censor it. They do that to
girls like us.

But I know you. You’re just
like me. All I can think is,
how dare they call you dark,
reclusive, morbid? You’re raw +
real. You know what’s up. And now
they’ll never erase your love.
  I’ll make sure of that.

Emily Dickinson
“I need her – I must have
her, oh, give her to me!”
