Author Jody Austin: She Loved

 

She lives

She lived

She loves

She loved

 

She loves love

She loved love

Love doesn’t love her

Love didn’t love her back

 

Love failed her

She failed love

Love gave up on her

She gave up on love

 

She f$*#ed love

Love f$*#ed her

She doesn’t owe love nothing

Love doesn’t owe her anything

 

So she said f$*k love and

The rest of them cats….

Jody About the Author

Jody’s mother was and is still a poet and artist who introduced her to poetry and expressive writing as a child in elementary school. Her bed time stories were of Nikki Giovanni, Sonia Sanchez, Marcus Garvey, Phylis Wheatley, Langston Hughes, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Chavez, Gil Scott Heron, Khalil Gibran, The Last Poets, and many others. She  was a classically trained musician in the earlier part of her life, and performed with different bands and ensembles. Coming from a family background of music it was in her blood.  Her aunt was a jazz singer who performed with many of the greats that include Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie ‘Yard Bird’ Parker. There was always a jam session going on. All of these influences started Jody’s creative writing experiences as a child and throughout her adulthood.
