talks to kitchen appliances
United States
To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget."

-- Arundhati Roy, The Cost of Living

i'm so sorry, i've been away. but it was good, and i am breathing easy again. as i hope you all are. i promise i'll get back to everyone and everything that's happening here, but i was walking by a flower stand in soho and i remembered something. about roses. and a boy. and i just wanted to tell you about him,

about the first and the last boy
who gave me roses; we were
sweet sixteen and sweet hearts and
our love was to be forever, even
as the petals wilted onto the
cover of my calculus book.

he would leave them in my locker
to be found before class but only
after he had snapped off
each and every thorn

and my unbroken heart would
flutter like a robin-wing and 
i would be so sure that love
would always be like that:
a blush-pink bloom in your locker
and a brown-eyed boy with
a shy smile and 

blood all over his 
fingers and

roses without
thorns


(everyone should be loved like that, at least once. simply, and just because. and i hope someone has loved you enough to give you roses without thorns, whatever that may be.)

you have been too kind to me and
i think you may have said
exactly what life is --
everything and nothing
all at once

It's really not kindness. More like awe.

All at once, then nothing, then all at once again.

Like a gas station.

I absolutely love your writing. It's so full of... meaning. Hah. There is nothing I love more than a dark poem, or a mysterious short story, etc.

Keep up the great work, I look forward to seeing more of your stuff in the future!

Your poetry breaks my heart. It is beautiful and hard to touch but easy to feel with the heart. Every poem I've read of yours so far has brought me to tears. I don't cry for anything. 

I want to thank you. I don't know why. But I needed your poetry, and I think I might need it yet. You are worthy of being published.
