I like spaceships, temples, and tea.

Some of my favorite poets and poet-adjacent-people: Federico Garcia Lorca, Ocean Vuong, Annie Dillard, Italo Calvino, Arundhati Roy, Michael Ondaatje, Becky Chambers, Pablo Neruda... The list goes on.

I am on here way too much.

My book is out next June! It feels wonderful to be able to say that with such certainty!

There are so many excellent writers on this site, but if you are new and looking for a place to start, check out: Paisley Blue, aosora, wishtree, aismic, Starlitskies, R.j.Elsewhere, amaryllis, .. ugh there are so many more....

God told me that, like the laws of the universe, morality is entropic. 

Oh! But It's a glorious thing to fade and fray, a banner left too long in the sun. 

May we exhaust ourselves,
May we refuse to decompose,
May we deny our bodies surrender!

    Love how you use both abstract and scientific ideas! With your writing, you make them mingle in extraordinary ways. <3
