the delicacy i strive to write with serves to hide the fact im permanently yelling
summer is a feeling i hope draws near soon

Message from Writer

howdy y'all i hope you'll view some of my work!
ive come to terms with the fact that not acting like the fool i am outside of my work is:
1. not as fun
2. a lot less personal
i do enjoy talking and writing with a sort of elegance but it's much more fun to just yell and throw around language carelessly once and a while

if you're going to read anything on this account ill ask you to look towards "perennial sweet alyssum"

overall, thank you so much for reading this and have a lovely day and days beyond!

i didn't understand blue

PROMPT: Place Poem

i didn't understand blue
not till' i saw the green
the ivy forming victorian lattice
up the base of a more rococo tree
her trickling leaves encircle
halo formed as if
to imitate a fairytale
mountain depiction

offspring acorns landed
with reminiscious whispers
of the once farmland below
their unsprouted forefathers fondly
rested and turned to soil

despite the dampened ground
which prepared for an upcoming equinox
i swear i heard
her children clatter with glee
not dissimilar to ice ...

orchidal natality

FREE WRITING

suck up a colored bile
from the pin prick wedge beneath
as the rusty vital sign is hemmed
its sin wave drawing C
the bloodlet tone familiar
yet the memory still unseen

a finger thrusting through the gum
encased in membranous silk
the air assails the bulb to split
an orchid's digitry

the flavor of summer

FREE WRITING

that semi-transparent fiction
its skirt fluttered softly
as it drifted through
the summer's syrupy humidity
the ribbon under her collar
loosened ever so slightly
perhaps enough that she might be able
to drink the summer air
as the lengths of her sleeves
fluctuated wildly
to match the whims
of that cotton-candy summer

it was too sweet

i realized that after you slept
surrounded by
carefree pastel balloons
blissfully unaware
of the cicadas' eve
and dreamed of a phantasmagorical lick
