I am a creative writing student in Southeast Alaska who loves to travel. I'm a little shy about sharing my work and I'm hoping to use this blog as a way to get over that. Some of my writing is travel-focused and some is just randomassshit. Happy writing!


Hello You Creatives: Shakespeare Insult Kit


Shakespeare Insult Kit

Combine one word from each of the three columns below, prefaced with “Thou”:

Column 1 Column 2 Column 3 artless base-court apple-john

beslubbering beef-witted barnacle
bootless beetle-headed bladder

Once So Close

This poem was recently published in a Southeast Alaska regional journal called Tidal Echoes. It is my first time being published and one of my first attempts at confessional poetry. 

Once So Close

He always

sleeps so sound

            hair stuck up


                                    shoulder bare

                                               then a slight 

twitchy dream

His eyes closed

hidden dreams


                         hand in mine

                                      bare feet hang

                                               body draped 

to one side

His leg wrapped 

with my own


                       eyelash dance


                                              almost wakes

just not quite

He used to

share the bed

           now who knows

                           what he dreams

                                       now that he’s

                                                    away from

Conceptual Poetics

Should I Marry a Fetishist?

Conceptual Poem from “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex: But Were Afraid to Ask” Published in 1969

What can a woman do to initiate sexual intercourse?
What are the different forms of frigidity?

What else do homosexuals do?
What part does the uterus play in sexual intercourse?

What is a fetish? To you?
An obsession? Something weird?

What’s the answer? What’s your answer?

Why do people do these kinds of things?
Why don’t prostitutes get pregnant all the time?

Orgasmic Bill of Rights?

Then gonorrhea is not really such a dangerous disease after all?
Then why do some people give up?
Then why do so many women have trouble reaching orgasm?

Why not?

Do American men like the operation as well?
Do their Asian wives agree?
Do the ovaries actually die?

Is absolute impotence very common?
Is pornography good for children?

The blind?

Is there a difference between someone who collects things and a fetishist?
