september 2014
i am exhausted by the goings on between my skin
and skin, and the extra parts inside of me they had to figure in:
the flat plate on my tibia, the V made out of pins
above a screw laid sideways, just casually drilled in -
my bones are full of holes and metal where the surgeon’s been
putting doll parts deep inside of me for the sake of functioning;
a stainless steel birds nest, with bits and twigs sticking out,
sitting where my kneecap was, spilling dirt and dust and sprouts
and during these months of rebuild i’ve needed all your help,
regrowing baby grass and nerves between tiles in the grout;
my body is a house that has been eaten by a rot
good to go for renovations - save that one soft spot.

Visits to my mother
you’ve put flowers on the table to mask the smell -
something dead at the back of the cupboard;
it’s easier for you to put on some cover up
than have someone ask what’s wrong.
the calendar in the kitchen is folded at the corners,
the paper remembering the humidity of summer
while the ink preserves the month of june, frontpage still,
five months later.
you pretend the frost,
creeping in early morning,
is the same as it was a season ago.
when you close your eyes you see springtime daffodils -
when i close mine, it’s you, circling vulture
sniffing out my prescription in the dark.

bear with me while i breath life back into this old account.

however, in the meantime you can find me on
and redbubble.

i am making an effort to get my name out there, to make some new art, and to reconnect with a community of artists. it's been a long time since i was last active on dA and i'm genuinely looking forward to sharing here again.

send me a note, ask me to check out something you've done - i'm always glad to share a perspective or conversation.
2014 is finally going to be over in a few days and i am ready as ever to move on. my wonderfully supportive roommates (and friends) got me a drawing tablet for christmas so i have been jumping into my 'make art every day' initiative for 2015 a bit early.. but i am loving it. it's taking some getting used to, learning how to draw digitally compared to traditionally, but so far so good. i was experimenting with that good ol' Paint program before i moved on to photoshop, where things are so smooth and lovely.

i've also posted a poem or two (haven't decided yet) that i was able to squeeze out of myself in the last month - it was difficult but my poem September 2014 is the first poem i've written and liked in three or four years; needless to say i am excited about it. words are so so hard for me now.

that's about all i have to say right now but will be posting any drawings i do in the next little while! hope to catch up with all of this amazing art in my deviantWATCH really soon. if there's anything you are proud of you should link me, i'd love to see. :heart:
