What I'm Reading: In Bed With a Sag



Ethereal.1

When I tell you guys that I have been dying to get my hands on this book of poetry, I am not exaggerating!!! In Bed with a Sag by E. Ortiz is a collection of poems written in the feminist spirit of not being afraid to express your sexuality and to embrace it, not to mention the photography in this book is amazing. I wish I could frame a few of the prints myself.


Just to give you guys a little background on how I found this gem. I have been following Ms. Ortiz on social media for some time now. I think when I first started following her on Ig, I was only familiar with her as a model from my home city, New York, with a dope esthetic which was enough for me to follow her at the time. Then slowly but surely, this beautiful soul began to show herself more and more, or maybe I just started paying more attention. Either way the excerpts of her writing that she posted online were so beautifully written and spoke of things that I definitely could relate to. So when I found out she was going to publishing a book; can you say excited? I did not get my hands on the book until her second printing which I am so grateful for. Even if you're not a fan of poetry I think anyone would be able to read her poems and take something from it that will stick with them for years to come. Besides the writing, I absolutely love to see young women, young artists making their own way out here and creating things from the soul. Please people, support your local artist and your independent artist, they need it most and all the independent artist I support never disappoint! Follow E on Ig @ETHEREAL.1
