i dream of pulling out your teeth
i’m just a product of the things that i reject
of course UVA starts a literary prose writing program two years after i graduated
that is all i ever wanted throughout my four years there and nobody in the english dept would listen to me or anyone else about starting one
idk i guess i’m glad it’s happening now but i wish it had happened earlier because undergrad creative writing opportunities were fairly scattered and directionless and lacking community unless you were a poet and now i’m remembering how confused and excluded and inferior i often felt
earlier this summer, i moved back to richmond. i’m still figuring out how i feel and where i fit in, and recently, i spent time talking to folks from flying brick library, richmond zine fest, rag & bones bicycle co-op, and the cales. these conversations were really inspiring to me, and i’m excited to get more involved.
and i wrote about all of these things! check it out on the media!
i read three poems i wrote back in january or maybe december and i didn’t hate them and i actually thought they were cool and now i feel slightly less scared of applying to grad school
good idea or bad idea:
bleaching my hair and dying it a pastel color
