pray with me

Ran Brady (any pronouns) is a queer poet home-grown in the foothills of Appalachia, who spends most days puttering in a garden or consuming candied words at any chance. Previously published in Screen Door Review Issue 14, Stone of Madness Press, and the anthology “S/He Speaks 2: Voices of Women, Trans & Nonbinary Folx,” Ran takes inspiration from southern pride and the experience that comes from taking root in that culture.
