About This Poem


"I often think of the expression, 'You have to work twice as hard to be viewed half as good,' used for women and people of color. Marginalized people are often asked to be the patient educators to non-marginalized people. I think this poem wrestles with the intrinsic unfairness of that."
—Ali Liebegott
