I stand convicted of being just me

This is my letter to the world that never wrote to me

2012 was a black hole and I crawled out and I'm damn near halfway through 2013 and I'm ready to pull on my big girl panties and settle on down to write like a motherfucker for real this time.

To Sleep
[Lisa Fay Coutley]

not as a woman who brews tea and kneels
on rice but one who swims with narcolepsy,

who cinches all the alleys into darkness
and fells trees, who forces a bit into the mouth

of aurora borealis until the moon parades
its wounds in color, until her limbs go numb

scene by scene, by sleight of hand, by flip
turning in a lukewarm pool between what walls

we build, between what shocks we tuck in
tight, between what we somersault and dredge

from our eyes at the temperature of sleep
without drowning, without burning

our temples, without righting the lies we tell
our minds to make us fade, to make us stay

still and take it, to make us love paralysis
to such a point we jump in water, legless.

"Black Holes are collapsed stars whose gravity is so strong that not even light can escape them, and they become, essentially, invisible. But that doesn’t mean, “out of sight, out of mind,” for these astronomical anomalies have a pervasive, inescapable effect upon their region of space, sucking in all matter in the region and distorting the very fabric of space/time itself. Astrologically, they represent total abandon, inescapable conditions, intense focus and personal magnetism or ability to attract; the startling, stunning turn of events in the twinkling of an eye, where old conditions disappear and a new reality is birthed"
--Alex Miller, from an astrology blog

1/23/11 07:22 pm - Yeah! I'm online!

 today, I am all over the internet, it seems. Go to this page (linked below), click on newest poems, then the December 2010 link, and scroll down and you'll find one of my poems! I know it seems like a lot of navigating, but the site won't let me directly link it for whatever reason. 
Even if I keep getting rejected form the hoity-toity magazines at least the internet wants me!
