As A Woman

I told you something new was in process. Here’s a nice angry feminist poem for you. 🙂 As A Woman It’s possible that, as a woman, I’ve failed but, as a person? The jury is still out. And, I’m sorry if you don’t want to accept that things keep growing until they die, but I […]

Foil Roses

So, I have my homemade smartphone camera stand (which basically means a wrapping paper roll, rubber band, some tape and an old mic stand), and finally motivated to record a few things.

Hey guys! Long time no post, I know. There’s a reason for that: it takes me forever to make a lyric video. So, I’m going to kind of crash test something a little different with this post: I’ve just gone and used my cell phone to record it.  Not having to manually add the lyrics […]

Letter From A Stranger

Still working off the back wall. I will be for a while, really.  This is another one I can’t really put a date to, but if I were to make my best wild guess, it would be somewhere around 2009-2010. Letter from a Stranger The words that slipped past my lips were turpentine. Now that […]

Night Drive

Still working on the back wall stuff (barely the tip of the iceberg on that, really). I’d estimate this one around 2002. It’s thematically really similar to the last piece I posted, so likely were written around the same time.  This one had to be written immediately after college.  I would assume it was a […]
