WOM Is...

by Lucia Brizzi

A mission statement on not having a mission statement

A mapquest on not having a path, but a thousand culdesacs leading to sitting quietly by yourself or raging on public transport whatever makes you feel more

No speeches, tapestries of half complete apologies and dead in the water declarations

A toast to DIY anthems and all the babies a mother can catch

WOM is not a revolution, it’s an already been WOMolutionized celebration

It’s not a call to action, it’s a flash mob where no one has to do the same thing

It’s our clothesline of private parts

Our mess is our mission
