Monday, July 18, 2016: Lesbian feminist poet Barbara Ruth

Then we hear a segment produced by Adrienne Lauby of lesbian feminist writer and poet Barbara Ruth reading some of her poems and short writings. Ruth, whose work has been published widely, describes herself as an old, arthritic, tree-loving, hypertensive, lesbian, epileptic, fibromyalgic Potowatomee, Ashkenazi Jewish, Welsh, chemically hypersensitive, neurodivergent daughter of Yemaya, spoonie, writer and photographer.

My poems and photos appear today in Slink Chunk. Womanifesto #11 was begun in 1974, so qualifies as a Dyketactics era poem Paola. It was rejected twice before it found it's home. On the Line was written last year, rejected three times before this publication. It begins: "If Paris is a woman, San Francisco is a lesbian."
