Winter is always a hard season for me. I recently set up some recording equipment in my room, and decided that instead of letting the cold get the best of me I’d record an EP of winter-ish songs instead of sitting around being sad. This is the first. I hope you like it.
Will you be my friend?
Will you poem me a porchswing?
Will you punch me in the tough, just once?
I need to reset my bones
swingset my ribcage
so the next time somebody pushes me away
I’ll swing right back to that chisel with my marble spine
Go ahead, build me
Go ahead, throw me at the storm like a fisherman’s prayer
I’d like to start of this month’s statistics with a few additional stats about myself. I’m trying to post a new sonnet every week now (Monday evening seems like a good time) and of my last 8 sonnets, 7 have been featured. So thank you whoever was responsible for that.
My longest feature streak was 5 and the current is 2 (unless some editor decides to feature Locked Away which would combine them to a streak of 8).
I have recently reached 400 followers and I thank you all for your support. If you want to further support me, recommend me, reblog me, , follow me on Twitter or like me on Facebook. You know, those places that are not as cool and friendly as tumblr. I really don’t seem to get any exposure there at all.
So without further ado and rambling, here are the stats for which you’ve come here in the first place. (I hope you stay for my poetry though.)
