Those whispers you hear are women unbound.
Unburdened by the secrets they held.
Unabashed by their feelings.
Unashamed of their anger.
They are unclothed, uncovered, and unruly.
They are unanimous.
They are telling.
Hear them roar.
From The Telling:
I like a dominant man in my life. I like someone who is in control. I like to think I’m in control, pretend it, brag about it, lie for it. I like that I know, that he knows, that I know I’m not really in control.
We don’t have to do anything, if you don’t want to.
The perfect line. The perfect pitch. He’s already made the decision, but poses it in such a way that I can make-believe it is mine. I like to take what doesn’t belong to me.
He’s a steamroller in my life and I like to be laid out flat. I like his hands on my chest, pushing me down whenever my back turns to the span of a bridge. His hands on my thighs, forcing me flat, flat, flat. Yes. Yes, I like that.
He makes me crow like a rooster and I want the world to know I’ve seen the sunlight. It’s like daybreak bursting to life inside me and for a split second I’m lit up brighter than a Christmas tree in Times Square. My body becomes a beacon, a calling card, a flash bang grenade and it draws more, more, more. I want a sunrise that keeps coming, up and down like a yo-yo on fire.
I like when everyone can hear my sunrise, my daybreak, my rooster call.
I’m vocal about it.
I’m in charge of it, or so I pretend.

“I loved this collection of short stories. I am a mom, a wife, a daughter, and a professional who is far from perfect. Perfect doesn’t exist but beauty does and through all the broken moments that arise so does the beauty of being a woman. These short stories tell the stories of woman in various moments in various situations. I found myself written in between the chapters, shoulder to shoulder, with imperfection… part of the beauty Laura A. Lord created with this book.”
