let's talk about whales.
there is a lot of poetry in a whale--
i like to think
that whales find peace in the depths,
in the abyssal darkness that,
doesn't choke so much as it

dreaming of kerouac
i want this to be delirious.
i want to pull the words out from my spine
slicksmooth like electrical wires--
i want the vertigo
the clawing at the tiles
on the bathroom sink.
isn't this supposed to be
strung up and strung
walking taut tightropes
and hoping for some literary

sound carries a long way
through sleeping deserts.
three miles off,
truck-radio karaoke is tinged with
cervezas and overexuberance.
water trucks blare their sirens--ice cream vans
for the old and boring.
our national language is yelling. locating calls
are met with answering calls
and somewhere a pack comes together,
Happy Holidays and an UpdateHappy Holidays, everybody! Sorry that I haven't been on in like...a week and a half. I had wicked and awful flu, so I haven't done anything but lay in bed and be sad for that time. Anyway, I'm back on my feet. I have been for the past couple of days, but I have also started picking up extra shifts at work since I'm done with my finals and all that, so I can work more to make extra money. So I have been working nonstop 10 hour shifts lol I took today off cause I felt just awful. But I have 10 hour shifts the rest of the week, minus my day off on Thursday. It'll be worth it when I get paid. I am also wanting to buy a new tablet for myself and it's like 500 bucks, so gotta earn it right?

Anyway. I'm happy the Holiday season is among us. Mostly. I get really depressed during the holidays since most of my family, people I used to spend Christmas with, have died by now. I miss them, and miss the times I used to have. However, I am doing my best to stay cheery as I can be. I'm thankful

March 10 2013, I was having a 'sleepover' with a friend, MinsaChan to be exact. We had a meeting with a group of friends in Zwolle and afterwards she came with me, too my home 'up north'. She is an amazing artist herself, and a sweet girl, a good person and she had read some of my poetry. She said to me, 'I think this is something for you!', she showed me the site and I got enthusiastic, I wanted to join. She helped me create an account and I was sweet with it for the rest of the evening
The same day/eve, I uploaded the first poems:
I'm still quite proud of these, I remember hoping they would be "good enough". Never got much feedback on em though, for I was new
2 respondents on the second one though, 2 people I have absolutely fallen in love with, storystosee and @MagicalJ
