Dragons and the Highway

"Dragons and the Highway" By Jeremy Johnson (schofield-alan.deviantart.com) Driving home at 4 am. The sprinklers water business lawns in their secret mist, except for one rebel, gushing straight up, a geyser against the smoky skies As the moon lights up its last cigarette. Victimized, the nocturnes launder their cowls and fall asleep before they finish their prayers for vengeance, damning their soft, soft eyelids. These are dragons that live as people. They sleep like people sleep. Not but a few hours prior, they were chasing Swinging flails in their claws, magic maces and scepters with iron spikes, thirsty for no blood in particular,

It WAS a hot one! Contest results!

It WAS a hot one! Contest results!

Anyone remember my hot little ol' contest? Or are we gonna focus on how much I suck for being almost completely missing in action over here? Pshh. Y'all still love me. (Hopefully) Anyway, there were some snazzy entries and I enjoyed reading them all. Y'all are purdy amazing, as per usual. :blowkiss: And now, for the weiners winners! By the by, I'm terrible with making decisions; y'all will see exactly what I mean when you get to the third place winner(s). I just couldn't decide, and y'all will understand this, too, when you get down to reading these pieces. Give 'em lots and lots of looooove, yeah? :bulletyellow: First Place :bulletyellow:

My Bio
"Why are you telling me this?"
—Chautauqua Literary Journal

“A metaphor is not an ornament. It is an organ of perception.”
—Neil Postman, from The End of Education

"An intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way. An artist says a hard thing in a simple way."
—Bukowksi

"...I came to believe that poetry has a much stronger relation to the spoken word than prose has. Punctuation basically has to do with prose and the printed word. I came to feel that punctuation was like nailing the words onto the page. Since I wanted instead the movement and lightness of the spoken word, one step toward that was to do away with punctuation, make the movement of the words do the punctuating for themselves, as they do in ordinary speech."
—W. S. Merwin

“The poet lights the light and fades away. But the light goes on and on.”
―Emily Dickinson

"Poetry, I feel, is a tyrannical discipline. You've got to go so far, so fast, in such a small space that you've just got to turn away all the peripherals. And I miss them!"
―Sylvia Plath

"There's something wrong with me chemically
Something wrong with me inherently
The wrong mix in the wrong genes
I reached the wrong ends by the wrong means
It was the wrong plan
In the wrong hands
With the wrong theory for the wrong man
The wrong lies, on the wrong vibes
The wrong questions with the wrong replies."
—Depeche Mode

Self-Hosting Questions

Self-Hosting Questions

Hey all.  I know I have been horribly absent and I'm very sorry to reappear like this with a question, but perhaps someone out there could assist me.  I have a website (wordpress) I am looking to self-host and I don't know very much about it.  Feeling a little overwhelmed life-wise right now and wondered if anyone who has been through the process of doing this could possibly advise me? Thanks if you can. :) <3

Alabama Dreamin'

Alabama Dreamin'

So late Tuesday I returned home from my amazing trip to Alabama to visit my beautiful FuzzyHoser (https://www.deviantart.com/fuzzyhoser).  She really spoiled me and showed me a great time loaferin' around her lovely south.  I returned to Ct with a healthy longing for country life, having experienced the wonders of Sweet Tea, Sonic, too much yogurt (I passed out and she couldn't wake me up haha), and some pretty amazing pizza and THE BEST COFFEE EVER OMG I'M RUINED FOR LIFE. :thumb449788132: We did soooo much in the short few days I was there that when I came back and told people what I'd done, they said, "Wow, you did a LOT over a few days!"  Indeed we did.  She spoiled me s

Tag a quality deviant: You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart
