(A Cinquain – The animated GIF is from GIFHY.com)

I debated that last line. I had chosen to end the cinquain with an alternative line, “fat cats” but I believe words are important. When certain words are used to denigrate and subjugate, we need to reclaim them. It gives those ugly words new life and power, rendering those victimized by such terms, victims no more. So…I’m hovering my cursor over the “Publish” button…and…I’m clicking it…published! Words matter.
