Poetry Picks: ‘Friends with Benefits’

This week’s poetry pick is by Jae Nichelle. I stumbled upon this piece by happenstance after leaving class last week. As I walked to my car I listened to her personify her anxiety in using a friends with benefits relationship.

It immediately resonated with me because I could relate to many of things she said. For example, being quiet while I fight internally with what I’m thinking. For any others out there that are plagued by the constant whispering of anxiety, this one is for you.

Press play…
