Ode to Laura Smith by Aischa Daughtery
Bad Betty Shots are limited edition mini-pamphlets, each containing a single long-form poem to give a concentrated hit of the author’s voice. We’ve got 100 copies of each, and then they’re gone!
Ode to Laura Smith is a chilling reminder of the school days you stuffed in a gym bag and hoped to forget.
