Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes her on Twitter: "it's my birthday and i have chin acne" (posted 29 Aug 2016) [1], "my moon is in scorpio sun is in virgo" [2] ... "sag rising" [3]. Full name and age/year from Place of birth unknown but this website states "Poet and essayist Melissa Broder grew up in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia" [4]. A speculative time of 3 p.m. EDT gives this combination.
