Jaz Persing is a writer, singer, and human living in Los Angeles. She works in television when she can. The rest of the time she’s just looking for a dare-to-be-great situation, hoping she can put a good dent in the world with the mess of broken love, vulnerability, and words she has. In the meantime, she’s immensely grateful for God and the many good people around her that make it all seem feasible.

Subway Song

No matter

Where I go
What city I live in
Who I marry
If I marry
Whatever hot and cold blooded future affair
Or peace-restoring joy
May tear you from my immediacy
How old I am
What I remember
Or choose to forget
What story should become legend

No matter
The wind on my face in the subway tunnel
As the thundering train approaches
Will always
Always belong to you.

No Defense
