On Hunger

At the Grip today, I wrote a heavy personal essay on my experiences with hunger in the context of domestic abuse.
After school, I begged some more, and if I was lucky the man I lived with would pick up a sandwich at a fast food place and allow me to eat half of it for dinner. What I didn't get was my own plate. I had to content myself with bites off his, and he salted everything he ate so heavily that his meals seemed covered in frost.

I've been experimenting with writing more personally lately, along with writing more politically. For me, the two seem linked.
