Poetry Electric: Dickless

a black arrow pointing downward

Written & Performed by Aisha Josiah

A headless cat and an incriminating photo begin an adrenaline-filled quest for revenge through the feminine underworld of small-town England. Narrated by Saff (who’s on the run) and Oli (who should be), unfolds a tale of bizarre sexual conquests, graphic ultra violence and girls behaving monstrously.
