"Dragons and the Highway"
By Jeremy Johnson
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.

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,

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
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.
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!
