this is hard for the world around us to grasp:
these wildfires raging in our retinas
& the sins we wear like demonic similes
on our tongues- they are not enough.

& i am so fucking sorry of saying i'm sorry.


but, tell me,
what is a young poet(ess) to do
with veins made of kite strings?
Haven't really been feeling myself as of late.
Words are hiding from me.

I notice a lot of references to kites and strings in your poetry. Why is that?

Because I like kites, and strings keep them grounded. :)

I can relate to this so much. All your poetry always manages to speak to me in some way. God, you have talent.

Veins made of kite strings...

That's my favorite imagery from this piece.

Veins made of kite strings. Perfect. It gives me a mental image of you, or someone, desperately trying to let the wind carry them off.

"i am so fucking sorry for saying i'm sorry." I like this part!
all we can do is fly, be ourselves and try to improve, at least that is what I got from it!
