By Rachael Powels
FROM THE ARTIST: "Epiphany emerged from my fascination with the power of the spoken word. Women are
taught to “use our words” in times of crisis but too often we find ourselves following societal scripts rather than speaking our minds. In this poetic monologue, a woman reflects on her relationship with language alongside her sexual experiences. By speaking the unspeakable, she allows herself to admit what she truly wants in life is perhaps more
simple than she once thought. Originally published by Bottlecap Press."
