‘Izzy’s Ink’ By Izzy Wilson

I. Genesis…a poem about the inception of domestic violence and incest that shaped my young self.
II. Consequence…2 poems about my return–despite helping hundreds of other women escape family violence as a social worker (and knowing and ignoring the red flags)–to submissively accepting multiple forms of abuse.
III. Phoenix Rising…”The misogyny–that foot on my neck–held me down only till I was pissed enough to fight back tooth and nail!” –Izzy Wilson
