I don't necessarily agree with my own assertions

Message from Writer

I was published by Rattle Magazine! If you would like to read it look up their website. It's called Frozen America!

I like spaceships, temples, and tea.

Some of my favorite writers: Federico Garcia Lorca, Teju Cole, 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.

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....

Above the Dirt

July 31, 2021

I’ve left the round earth behind. 
Above her curved back, I wait 

to feel my feet again,  

to be more than a giant who holds
the sun in his cracked palms. 

to be more than a subversive symphony
of fists and unborn moths, 

fighting gravity’s flame.
