When I’m Depressed I Buy Books by Madison Lindy

“You are a badass”

Says the book on my shelf.

I bought it in the midst

Of a PMS-induced depression.

“I am a badass”

I said to myself as I put it in

My Target shopping cart

Next to the Tylenol and tampons.


*Found poem from Jen Sincero’s You Are a Badass

Madison Lindy is secretly an elf. To hide her elfin identity, she has become a writer. It seems to be working so far.
