Anna Antongiorgi: “everybody’s autobiography”

everybody’s autobiography

keep reading this poem because
it’s about you – choose this life carefully,

be bold, and breathe in only the air that
suits you. do not let any man convince

you that emotions are not the most
beautiful thing to inhale and witness.

that’s gendered. I will hold your hand,
squeeze it as the monsters jump out of

screen. it is ok if you’d like to close your
eyes. I’ll be waiting for you to lift lids

and begin to take in the world again.

Anna Antongiorgi is a writer, choreographer, and dancer originally from Redondo Beach, California. A member of the Harvard Class of 2019, she graduated cum laude in English and Theatre, Dance, and Media. She is currently working toward her MFA in Creative Writing at the New School.
