To Be Restless
Heavy against the windows, the opaque night
isolates and infiltrates, sends
the dogs flying
to my side, and even in the warmth,
under the wash of the firelight, their ears hear coyotes
and the pressing sky plays with their minds.
With the lights off I can ease my mind,
see through the gaunt mask of night,
that the darkness is not thick but light and coyotes
navigate it like reflections and shadows alike. Their cries send
me reeling, fighting my urge to hide, knowing that warmth
and flames will not feel so much like flying.
I climb until I could be flying
and let the stars replace the thoughts in my mind.
The trees do not understand my warmth
but still envelope my spirit in the dying night,
guide me to the forest floor and send
me on my way, to search for the coyote’s stardust eyes.
At your side I imagine we are coyotes,
our laughter echoing down suburban streets, hearts flying
when we spot the cop car that sends
us leaping off the roof and into the sky, no ti

I'm pretty sure a whole two years have passed since the last time I was active on here, which is a bit wild. Or a lot of wild.
To update: I'm now only semester away from graduating college! Holy shit!
Since my last post I was trained as a barista at my job, and then a shift-supervisor, I broke up with my old boyfriend and started dating someone significantly better for me - we've now been together a year and he moved in with me a couple months ago, which has been WONDERFUL. I started learning karate and it became a huge and essential part of who I am. I traveled across the country by myself and spent four months in the wilderness of Oregon, from which I'll be posting pictures today! I became ridiculously passionate and angry about social and environmental issues; I became significantly more serious about my art and my writing; I started living on my own for the first time; I shaved both sides of my head and then chopped all of my hair off; I became addicted to video games and then broke the addiction; I started playing Magic the Gathering (which is super fun) and wrote a real shitty novel in the span of a month.
It's been a looong couple years, but so incredibly fun and I've learned so much and grown so much. This last semester will probably be hard, but I'm hoping to have some great art to post on here when it's all over with!
Here's to hoping I actually have followers left!
