Nadia Anjoman

Consider this:

Makes me feel somewhat ridiculous. I mean, going to school to study poetry in such a casual manner, aimlessly opting for a degree in the subject as if that validated anything . . . Consider the struggle of not only this woman but many of the poets on the UniVerse site. Consider Arenas, Bulgakov, or anyone who ever wrote under such oppressive conditions. Art, to them, was not a luxury.

Good god, I’m depressed.
