Sneak Peek: The Voting Booth After Dark

April 12, 2011

We’re lucky to feature this sneak peek into The Voting Booth After Dark, Vanessa Libertad Garcia’s collection of intertwining poetry and prose.

“Sorrow”

When I was little I thought I’d never sleep alone.

Sleep in the dark alone.

Live on my own.

For fear of sleeping in the dark alone.

And I did
     Live alone
     Sleep alone
     Sleep in the dark alone.

The fear stopped for a while
Now it shoots up randomly in pangs.

And I get afraid
     That breathless
          transparent
               panicked fear.

But know I’m too old now
               too far now
               for sanctity to hold me.
