I wrote one piece everyday in april for national poetry month and I have been posting them on my tumblr, so unless you have been checking in there then you haven’t seen any of them. Lucky for everyone, I have compiled them into a lil .pdf with some other snippets of my life/gchats/tweets/facebook/selfies from the past month. Click here to download.
ILLUMINATI GIRL GANG is a publication for female expression in the arts edited by Gabby Gabby.
This piece of mine that is in my ebook Goodbye Drinks was put on Thought Catalog last week.
I have a poem on Michael Inscoe‘s ‘unsure if i will allow my beard to grow for much longer.‘
Also while you are there, read some more poems by these other good people:
Hi I printed my two ebooks into hand sewn chapbooks. Both ebooks are available for free on my wordpress. if you would like me to send you a chapbook, i am selling them for $3 each or $5 for both. postage fees are included in that price, wowww. you can help me make back the money i spent on 40s and bolt bus tickets to new york.
or if you wanna do a swap we can do that too, i like that idea.
or if you just wanna pay like $1 or nothing that works also.
you can paypal me at firstname.lastname@example.org and send me your address, ok thanks ^_^
my mother texts me to say it is snowing and i close the text message and don’t look outside
i fold a paper crane out of a small square of blue paper with my eyes closed and put it in a jar with other paper cranes of different colors

my friend sends me an email and i read it and cry a little and decide to wait till tomorrow to reply
am i in proximity to someone who is also sitting in bed listening to the weakerthans, and if so, how do i find them?

I wrote a poem called ‘Hideaway Camp’ and it is in the new issue of Microscenes, edited by Lee Costello.
hi, you can read it here.
5 haiku for people I loved before the end of the world.
We loved, then dissolved.
It took us a decade, but
we’re right back to us.
You tell everyone
I was the one who killed us.
Please leave me alone.
I hope you’re happy.
I’m still thinking about you.
It’s funny, really.
I wish Chicago
was not twelve hours away.
We could have been great.
I still feel eighteen
when I fall asleep with you.
We should stay like this.
I wrote this poem before the apocalypse that never came (i’m here, i’m still here). beach sloth reviewed it, which you can read here.
Megan Lent and Riley Michael Parker at HOUSEFIRE have put together a Blondie themed ebook titled ‘PLATINUM HITS‘ and were awesome enough to include me. I have a piece named after the Blondie song ‘(I’m Always Touched By Your) Presence, Dear’.
The book also features work from Frances Dinger, Jess Dutschmann, Chelsea Martin, yt sumner, Paige Gresty, Penny Goring and Meghan Lamb. Neat.
