I have the pleasure of following Ericka on multiple social media platforms – the link below is her Tumblr blog – and as thought-provoking as her writing is, she is equally as funny.
Ericka is a published novelist and is the founder of Tipsy Lit.
This poem, titled “Seconds”, is a favorite of mine and is a good representation of the type of piece she produces on a regular basis. I hope you enjoy – and investigate the rest of her work!
