Will you feel better?


I wish that youtube had music with no videos sometimes.  That’s the way I like to consume it.

In other news, this is devastatingly relevant.

Oh HEY I got accepted into the Northern Eclecta, which is a journal NDSU puts out every year with creative submissions… I am happy.  This next poem isn’t the one that got accepted.  I just wrote this today actually.  

Paring


would you cut out
the rotting parts of your
past as if it were a slightly-too-old
vegetable?


there have been times

 

when I wished for

 

forgetfulness

 

still, decay is good for the ink
in a way that easy-to-consume
isn’t

 

so I leave myself inelegant I leave myself
whole

 

another year of tangled half-brilliance
another year of enough imperfection

to blind someone
