‘It Felt Like Yawning’ By Angela Pollinzi

Following a woman’s struggle with her sexuality, poetry and metaphor are used to describe the difficult relationship we often have with ourselves and how much we can learn when we welcome change instead of shying from it. The woman reflects on her life and what it means to be with a girl in a world where barriers are placed on what love should look like.
