Other People's Comfort Keeps Me Up At Night (Morgan Parker)

"Cinderella jams to Curtis Mayfield while scrubbing her own vomit from the bathroom tiles. On her hands and knees she’s all like, Damn why I gotta be the man of the house?”

"Cinderella jams to Curtis Mayfield
while scrubbing her
own vomit from the bathroom
tiles. On her hands and knees
she’s all like,
Damn why
I gotta be the man of the house?”

U.S.A. / 2015

Author of the popular "If You Are Over Staying Woke" (2015), Parker released her debut poetry collection in 2015. She has such a frank, hilarious and powerful voice. Her stuff is super, super amazing. This quote is gold. I highly recommend reading more of her work.
