I have learned of syntax,
of the context which keeps secrets secret
and jokes ‘in’.
glittering and multi-faceted
our language sheets before us
in a slowly-moulding
unmeasurable stretch;
Strewn through the navy bulk of specifically correct
drift sparkling chunks,
the ways & words of cliques & clubs
somehow a glue that holds a group together,
and if closely examined
you can read their story
in the heartbreak of jokes
between the lines.

This blog is the collection of my poetry and prose, in chronological order from most recent to oldest.

Constructive critique is actively encouraged!

I am usually singing words as well as writing them, and make lots of other art. You can find me & my other art at any of the below links. x

Latest quick update…
