Sometimes I’m prickly

Sometimes I am prickly. Today I am prickled because of Instagram’s sexist censorship policies humoring the misogynistic pigs who troll me. Both my personal account and @achinglypolite had stories reported and removed due to violating Instagram’s ~ community guidelines ~ Think about it: Our bodies violate Instagram’s community guidelines.

Venn diagram for the fuckboy

I made a lil Venn diagram to clear up some stuff for the time-wasters in the back. The amount of male humans who have excused their shitty behavior with “I’m just not ready to commit” or “you seem to want something more serious” is A LOT. To this I reply, “Honey, I don’t want you…

You will not dry me

You will not dry me   The gladiolus in his drooped decay Sinewy bend for upside-down blooms like the wishbone of gardens. Severed ends, Rootless, he slurps In silent desperation As only a leaf’s width away In her pinstriped suit, calathea in salutation greets the sun   Perhaps punishment for poison, yet pothos tangles in…

Different creatures, you and I

We are different creatures, you and I. We laugh at different jokes and cry at different times. While we look alike, we’ll never be the same. Let us each go our own way and tread two separate paths. What is for you is lovely, but it mightn’t be for me. Happiness for all of us,…
