despite the middle school teacher
coursing through my mother's body,
I have become an overwriter.
I remember how her back looked,
arched over me like protection from bad handwriting. I learned to hold a pencil her way,
my eyes were supposed to be half
a foot away from the page
just so my back would never need to.
my rebellion started with the i's, no longer
were they dotted an eyelash away from the body--
they were rounded like water for lost
men in the desert.
and when I learned to conjugate,
the i's stopped existing. they became funnels of deceit -- an afterthought
of a tree trunk I was too distracted by the leaves
to draw-- feeling my mother's eyes
bore into my temples, "how can you overwrite an i?
how can you forget yourself?"
I don't know when I lost letters between
joining them. it was supposed to be shorthand
never the short end of the stick;
I promise I'll find the patience
to dot them like they deserve
and write their civil, umbrella-curve
you are the flipping sunwhen the sun hesitates
and falls asleep
on off dimanches and clustered
look over to me:
look beyond the burnt
line of the horizon.
competence is an abstraction
and we have made of it
what we will but days
pass along, go on like stray
plastic bags in the wind;
the only sin you were born in is one
you and I don't believe in.
you are closer
to the seas,
to the infinity of the future--
it may be running out with every second
but you close your eyes
on expiration dates;
will make it.
you are blinded by the sun even at its weakest;
you are nothing less
tell yourself this:
the width of your smile is a crevice I made deep
found a home in, to tuck myself in
and hide for days-- weeks when
you find your pride wearing thin, know
that mine is welling. the future is as
uncertain as we make it;
make it certain
wake up and stay, mark your semicircular arc
on this faux azure ceiling -- I see you burn
and fall asleep; th

What's the story behind it?
"You can tell a lot about a person by what they write, but there are lots of other ways to get an idea of who they are. What they wear; what they read; what their room looks like; what posters they hang on their walls; what they keep in their bedside drawer. If you're like me, bored with answering the same questions, then feel free to jump in and show your watchers who you are in a different way. "

Many of you have been in this community for a long time, but whether you’ve just joined or you’ve been a member since day one, this is your first impression of the new DeviantArt.
Change is not something that we take lightly, because it affects our collective identity. It was important for us to define who we are and what we’re made of at our core before we changed anything. We all have our own understanding of what that means, but the process of getting that core story down on paper took almost a year.
The result is “Bleed and Breed Art.” This is our center of gravity and our reason for getting out of bed i
hope this song is goldenwow, an update that isn't shameless self-promo (spoke too soon?)
first off, omg the chat was amaaaaazing and I'm so sorry I couldn't see you all. I'll do another, this week so most of you can make it. I'll put up a poll to check your availability so I can see all your pretty faces and embarrass myself. it was awesome having 0hgravity Gadgetsmith shehrozeameen and my friend who doesn't have dA (boooooo Jay) and I hope I see you all again
secondly, holy fuzzballs I got into med school and a good one too. yes, I thought I'd feel fulfilled that it's finally happened after the longest months of my life and in a way, I am. I'm not bouncing off the walls; I am just utterly content with this. grateful, at peace. I can't wait to start, even though it's terrifying how much change is about to happen, but I happily welcome it. the life I truly wanted is about to start and it's going to be brilliant.
thirdly, all the CDs have been dispatched and I apologize if something ba
these fragile rulesI am out of words to show how this community humbles me with its support and appreciation for my poetry. thank you so, so much, miserabel and HugQueen for finding to the boy who doesn't plan on leaving worthy of a DD. I am honored.
I can't even put this in words. I miss this place and I miss everyone who got me where I am here and to pay it forward (in a way) I've got a little present for you guys.
I've never considered my poetry 'up there' but I realized recently that that's hardly the point of creating art. you should put it out there so you know if it even deserves to be there and I'm tired of hiding away, behind pseudonyms and anonymity. so I've been working on a little project for my spoken word poetry. yes! yesterday, I added the final touches to my first spoken word album, the articulation of my vertebrae: from being spineless to finally standing tall. it's due to release on my
