There are boys sitting next to my flowers made of 20 dollar bills,
they come up like stray dogs,
gentle words-
what are you doing here,
my you smell nice,
that perfume,
and may we kiss you on the tongue.

i looked at them and said i'd rather stick nails in my hands.
i went home drunk and closing doors and there was a heavy warm silence
of dreaming people,
under their closed lids the wind is coming from a russian whisper like a goddess,
under a heavy monsoon of hair,
my ebony-locked-lover,
white as bone skin
with a miraculous soft voice like the bete
running a salty tongue up the fat,
inner seashell curve of her thigh,
a sickly fairytale princess swathed i

Take a journey into my psyche.

My piece "I lead a quiet rebellion." was published in the January issue of TeenInk.

If you're unfamiliar with TeenInk, it's a publication for writers by writers than runs solely on submissions by its readers. Published as "My Quiet Rebellion," my piece was featured on the cover and had a prominent spot in the Non-Fiction section of the magazine. It nearly had a page dedicated to it, but since a bit of my work was edited out, it shares a page with an article talking about how to buy a plunger. Uh. I suppose I can't complain, but I saw that and laughed about it hard.

I submitted a few things to TeenInk just to see what could happen and I never thought that anything would come of it. It's pretty surreal.

  • Drinking: Water

I haven't been on deviantart for a long time (hence the childish username and horrid art) but i'm glad i remembered my ogin info because when we read the piece you wrote that was published in TeenInk magazine for English class, I decided to go and read the other writing you'd posted on TeenInk and I fell in love with your writing. I'm so glad i found you on here, and I just wanted to let you know how much i love all of your writing, and that you're the only reason i made a TeenInk (or logged back into Deviantart, for that matter)

Thank you for this message. I've saved this in my inbox for quite some time and whenever I come back to deviantART, mostly to clear my messages, I read over it. I appreciate the support immensely.
