    We all have felt the restraints of the “girl” expectations and this is a perfect description: “…the uniform of perfection, where no girl could live…”

    I read “Six-Sided Life” quickly. Straight awayI felt connected with a powerful flow of images and remembered things from the past. I think the piece is beautiful. Before reading I was feeling lethargic and weighed down by the wintry weather and the covid-19 news updates. After reading I sense aliveness and wonder. Thank you for sharing your work. The photo by McKniff showing the milky hexagonal bottle and decaying flowers is also beautiful. Tomorrow morning I shall take the time to re-read “Six-Sided Life” aloud. I love it.

    This is a gorgeous piece. I love the form, but I also really love how the form supports the depth of the writing. The vignettes break and lift my heart. Thank you, BREVITY, for publishing; thank you, Max, for writing.
