matched

hello, spark yourself
into this world.

stoke and burn for
as long as you can,
or want.

try and forget that
you’ll leave fireless.

and almost without
smoke.

why no new poems?

just wanted to leave a quick note as to why there haven't been new posts recently....

the poems I've been writing lately are for the chapbook coming in the fall (not summer as previously planned, but that gives me and j&j at chance press time to make it extra awesome!) and I want the poems to be fresh. oven fresh, not warmed up in the microwave. the microwave would just make them tough and chewy, and nobody wants that.

however, there are a couple of things I've written that I don't plan for the chapbook, so look for those in the next few days. all 2 of you reading this.
