so yay! the tumblr is up now, although there’s actually not anything on it; i’ll deal with that minor issue later. visit/follow if you have tumblr at: goldfish-and-the-microphone.tumblr.com. (yes, goldfish and the microphone is growing on me… it’s endearing!) i won’t be posting regularly on that blog; but i will upload all the poems from this blog that i feel like deserve more appreciation/ have been really popular on this blog. in other words, i’ll post semi-regularly, on whatever day i want, because scheduling posts is stressful. same goes for the youtube.
this blog is still obviously my main platform, so it’s always going to get the most of my attention.
yay! youtube channel is up, will be posting spoken word poems as often as i think is worth my attention. there’s nothing up there yet (feeling really tired tonight) but i’ll try to get something up at some point soon. check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCre6VYnPIqMv3qo0a4xCqKQ?view_as=subscriber.
something true: the google docs app is feeling functional this week. it even let me access some of my poetry without a wifi connection. sometimes it’ll upload my offline edits without even asking. it rained here today for the first time in ages and so now the radish seedlings aren’t dying. today is pi day so we’re eating apple pie and i remembered to remind you this time and your pie crusts are amazing and i know it won’t last. but right now the sun is blooming in little rapunzel-gold waterfalls scrolling across my cheeks in that perfect section of time between 12 and 2. jet lag is a real thing. you are a real thing. the thing about following your heart is surprisingly good advice and apparently it is also a thing. i was brave enough to try. this book i’ve been waiting for to come through has been finally brought to the library. it’s only five months to the next release. i’ll get to see you tomorrow. i wasn’t afraid when i put up poetry club posters which is a new thing. you’re starting to feel like a mentor to me. the irises are unfolding their glacier-blue perfectly symmetrical petals more and more every day. the daffodils are growing their flowers impatiently waiting to explode. we facetimed today. i deconstructed a key fob. i can at least talk to you instantly even if i’ll never meet your eyes and your face is starting to fade from my mind. it’s not enough, but i guess that’s something.
