The Poet

The musings of a poet who has lost his way.

If my boyfriend gets his way, this will be our adopted child.  I mean either the chicken or the boy…

My brain is fried. Quarterly exams always do this to me. #bowtie #ootd
Happy #monochromaticmonday. My outfit does not match this beautiful day. That’s okay—my classroom has no windows!
Today is the #NationalDayofSilence thus the #rainbow #bowtie and black #ootd. Students in my school have pledged silence to show solidarity and support for their #LGBT classmates.
I was going to wear a different #bowtie today but then realized I haven’t worn purple in a while and here we are!
Another comic from my handsome man! Watch as he discovers the pain of rejection from a publisher! He does survive, though!

Unreliable: 4.9.14
I’ve been focusing a lot on writing these days, hence the lack of recent comics. I’m finishing up my booky book, and I’ve also been working on some short stories and things. Exciting times!
Everybody tells you that rejection is part of the process, that it’s unavoidable. That’s absolutely true, but as ready as you think you are, as much as you prepare yourself for it, it still FUCKING SUCKS. So I had a self-pity party for like 24 hours, and then I realized that I was still alive and the world didn’t end, so I stopped being such a punk and got up and decided to try again. We are currently still in the “trying” part of the publishing process, but I figure as long as I at least keep doing work I’m proud of, I’m not a total failure. Cuz then it’s like, at least I have one fan…right?
Wait, does that sound sad?

Blue and green today. #bowtie #ootd

Today’s outfit matches the weather—gloomy and gray but with a glimmer of sky #bowtie #ootd
Happy #monochromaticmonday picked up this cardigan over the weekend at H&M and I love it. Goes well with this neutral #bowtie  #ootd
