It is repulsive the way people are confining to the idea of what a “prep” is. I am absolutely disgusted by asks on my dash that read, “Is it preppy for me to wear red skinny jeans?” or “I’m applying to college. What schools are preppy?" 

Form your own ideas. Form your own opinions. It is sickening how people restrict their behaviors and ideas in order to fit an inaccurate stereotype. 


an empty nest both lost and found—
between shelter and storm—stood

above the sky, blue and broken, 
cloud un-hatched and lain to waste

as he mistook a robin for a rock
as i    mistook a rock for a robin.

the thorns of a withered and wrung rose
—embedded in earth-touched, sun-scorned skin

laden with the weight of winter’s breath,
and wrought with autumn’s bane—

are the sole remnants of a fallen
flower, petal-stripped in vain.

i sit strewn and stranded in the empty,
sinking in a flesh-frozen field of corn stover.

I decided on you, don’t you get that? I decided on you. I don’t want to go fucking other people and then walk around feeling thrilled and then sad, or empty, or whatever. I like the smell of your hair, and I like the sound of your voice, and I fucking decided on you.
