Ava was born 3 days ago.

She's pretty amazing.

And has really long toes. Like, really long toes.

Terribly inactive around here. Not changing anytime soon. :P Baby due in 2 weeks! I've been scrambling to get things ready and in order...I hear this is generally referred to as "nesting." In between naps, of course. I seem to require many naps.

Been writing some, and not been liking a lot of it. Although I am working on a short story on the moment, which is something I rarely do these days, and wondering if I can expand it into something farther. We'll see.

Thank you for all the recent favorites/llamas/comments/new watchers! You guys are the best, seriously.

So speaking of you guys...please tell me how you've been. Got any fun plans for the summer? Vacations? Projects? :heart:

you promised me
a forever
perfumed in sunlight

[untether ribs
peel lungs]

you promised me
the past
shattered into landfills

[unlace nerves
fracture muscles]

you promised me
a present
anchored into cement

[unlatch throat
strip voicebox]

my skin will never forgive
the silk of yours and i will
bleed your words dry
with the whisper of my nails
to your waxcast veins
promised
lack of sleep
reshapes my brain
bizarre

Sundown, the color
of blood and filth,
offers no disappointment.

Moonlight
haunts the corners
of your pupils;

moonbeams
tatter the centers
of your eardrums;

moontides
gutter savagely
under your skin.

Sunrise, the color
of blood and dreams,
offers no respite.
Escape
I was trying to write something completely different, and this poem got completely in the way. Does that ever happen to you?
Loading...
Curl wrists to herbs,
elbows to grains,
shoulders to oil.

Wrinkle toes to pan handles,
knees to blender cups,
hips to measuring spoons.

Pivot nose to platter,
chin to place settings,
collarbone to silverware.
Dinner Preparations
I was toying with the phrase "throw yourself into your work"...this was the result. I feel like this is a little out there, but I was hoping for some feedback.

Does the point come across? Or do I need to add something at the end to make that intention clear? Do you like the imagery? What do you think of it overall?

It's almost May, people! Where int he world does the time go...baby due in a month and a half. I might be freaking out about that just a little bit. But freaking out in a good way. :heart:

Okay, ramble over. Please do tell me your thoughts on this!
