Poet Among Other Things

To My Almost Girlfriend:

I still love you. It’s been years, but I do. It’s very different from what we shared. I remember that day when we first met. We were introduced and the connection was instant. Your eyes sparkled. You made me feel warm; Warm like a field of wildflowers in late summer. It happened slowly, or it … Continue reading »

A Letter to My Hair

Dear Hair, What the quiff?! We’ve been together for all these years and this is how you repay me? Is it because I cut you off? I’m sorry about that. Everyone attributed it to “the gayness,” but you and I both know that had nothing to do with it. Well, maybe it had something to … Continue reading »

Find Someone to Carry You

In deep, intimate moments I’ve often lamented to myself, and anyone who would listen, that there are no more great frontiers. ┬áSure, there are places with unknowns. The ocean is larger and more terrifying than any land mass. We don’t even know where the expanses of space end, or if they ever do stop expanding. … Continue reading »

Awareness

Last week I opened my email to find that one of my pieces had been selected as the winner of a poetry contest I had all but forgotten that I had submitted to. (Again, actual content is forthcoming, I have two drafts in the hopper at the moment) My heart is filled with churning emotion … Continue reading »

Contest Blame

Perhaps I’ll have an actual post eventually. For now, life is busy; school has started again and I’m heavily involved with some campus organizations doing great things, I’m working through some things and learning a lot about myself. I was reading through some old journal entries tonight and found this from a few weeks ago. … Continue reading »

Mine

You know how one of the favorite social media stereotypes to pick on is that person that posts cryptic things like “I’m so done”? That phrase and others like it don’t necessarily mean “I want to complain, someone ask me what’s wrong;” Sometimes they mean “I’m done fighting” or “I’m done letting things slide.” This … Continue reading »

Love and Freedom

I wrote this months ago, but given the national legalisation of same-sex marriage, it seems apropos to share now. I’m learning that, as a creative person, sometimes you make┬ásomething, and you love it and are satisfied with it, but just can’t share it. It’s not that it isn’t ready, but that the environment isn’t ready. … Continue reading »

Hello, It’s Mz. Hyde

Better be scared, better be afraid, Now that the beast is out of her cage It’s not clean. They aren’t family friendly in the least. Most of the songs are about sex, whether explicitly or implicitly. The lyrics are full of obscenities. But there’s more to it than that. Sometimes you have to look past … Continue reading »

Saying “No” Isn’t Weak

Volumes of Rows is the only story I’ve ever finished, and I only finished it because it had to get out of my head. I came up with it as I was shelving in the library one day. Have you ever compressed a stack of paper and then let it go really fast? It makes … Continue reading »

C’est La Vie

“I wish it were socially acceptable for adults to climb trees.” I just laughed and picked another burr off my backpack. “Last time I called Annie she almost fell out of her tree.” C’est La Vie Have you ever noticed The smell of Autumn? The scent of fallen leaves Warmed by the sun It’s warm, … Continue reading »
