Poetry: “And So She Did” + “The Nomad”

Poetry: “And So She Did” + “The Nomad”

AND SO SHE DID Gentle was the unbidden ripening, Of a once wilted ingenue. Her staged longings scattered Like the aged pages Of curiously learned words, That whittled away at her. She dressed herself in dismantled prose The flush of her skin freeing The quiver of her pursed lips reprieving, As she grew to taste [...]

Lifestyle and Literature: The New Year Checklist, Content Creation, and a Fresh Start

Let the New Year bring more writing, more reading, and the ability to maintain the productive lifestyle that brings me so much joy. Towards the end of 2018, I haven't really been as active on here as I would've liked, and that is the first thing that I want [...]
