By Myself Forever

I like your natural hair today and your natural face and your natural hips and your natural belly and your crazy eyes. I don’t wish for you to be different but in the ways that make you a better version of you to you and for you. You wait for other people to tell you…

Warren G and Gluten Free

I’m sorry it’s hard to stop. I’m back in grad school now and I’m panicking. It’s actually pretty fucking great, that’s the problem. It’s legit wonderful. I like school. I like order. I’m trying. I take cranberry pills and plant based digestive enzymes and green tea supplements now. I meditate on Wednesdays and listen to…

The Nephew of Ishmael

I’m a little antsy in a controlled way. You don’t know me and I don’t know you but it feels like we’ve met. I’m a little nervous in a giddy way. You don’t know me and I’ve never met you but it feels like we’ve kissed. I’m a little excited but not in a scared…

Ragazzo carino

I miss how your dick tastes. And I don’t care if you don’t miss me. I couldn’t be there anymore and not have you anyway. I miss your cum in my throat. Standing right in front of you, breathing your air used to be my favorite thing to do. I wish that you hadn’t gotten…

SCMaglev

You don’t notice the perfection of the pavement until there is a pot hole impeding your path. It’s only there to make you comfy. You ignore the fact that you’re flying through the air in a metal bird if it takes too long to taxi. It only exists to satiate you. You’re oblivious to murder…

When Irish Whiskey Speaks for Me

Aye, first of all, you’re too loud. No seriously, seriously, we’re all adults here. All of us. Calm down, okay? Every one. You got that? There’s no reason to raise your voice to or at anyone here, there’s no one here, honey who doesn’t understand what you mean. All we can ask for from one…

Auditioning Sidekicks

I texted the monster. I told him in case he needed me he had a way to contact me. Then I met Houdini. The right speech patterns, the right spirituality, the right artistic endeavors. But turns out like it turns out he isn’t the fucking brightest. We fucked anyway and we’ve already had a fight….

Son Lux

The thing that I like about him the best is that he said exactly what he thought that this association should look like right out of the gate. My god. He didn’t try to trick me He didn’t try to manipulate me He didn’t try to see where I was vulnerable and exploit me He…

Thunder Valley Casino

So shy in public but a rock god at home Crunching numbers in the office but singing show tunes alone And you may not be able to tell on the surface Clothes and smiles hide things But what entertains you when no one judges Is closer to who you really are than what I outwardly…

Kim Deal

Slowly but surely I’m scooping the balm of the sages on myself and lathering me up Surely yet slowly I’m coating the itchiness of insecurity with the salve of reality and clarity I heard it a million times before that nobody is perfect but I never let it sink into my skin deep enough before…
