ifwewerefeckless asked: I've been a BIG fan of your work for quite some time now and tonight I was reading Bitchfest which interestingly enough has an essay in it called The Collapsible Woman by Vanessa Veselka. I having both watched and read Paper Dolls what seems like thousands of times immediately recognised the language similarities between what I was reading, and your poem. I was wondering if you had infact read this essay and it informed you writing Paper Dolls? If so what an awesome intertexual reference!
YES YES YES!!! I actually sent a copy of Paper Dolls to the author (never heard back) but was incredibly influenced in both my writing and life by that article!
