I miss you more than I thought I could miss
someone I met only as a swift, sharp kick
I miss your unheard cries, your unwiped shit,
the way you never gripped my thumb in your tiny fist
I held your mother for an hour last night
as she shook with wordless, tearless cries
while my husband talked down your dad outside
even your dogs hid under the bed and whined
you had a great set of gay uncles in us
to babysit when your folks needed a little fun
and later, drop you off and pick you up
and much later, teach you drinking without getting drunk
and you were going to teach us too
if we were ready to adopt a friend for you
instead, you taught us too much, too soon
about how much we didn't know we had to lose
Contest Deadline Extended!The contest has officially started. The deadline is now the 29th of November 2013!29th of Decemeber!More Like This
I added an extra month to the deadline as a lot of people have been requesting it.
Furthermore I may be lowering the prizes to entice more competitors. Offering $300 for a prize was supposed to draw out high quality art from some bigger names, however it was pointed out that those people would probably rather draw a few commissions and definitely be paid for it, that risk spending a long time on a work that might not win.
This however is a maybe. And not set in stone just yet.
Everything else in this journal remains the same so if you've read it already, there's no need to keep going ^w
(For everyone who has read this journal before, all the details are the same, except I've added Alexander's Reference Sheet below, FAQ's and one more acceptable theme)
