The Poet

The musings of a poet who has lost his way.

“When you write things down, it feels like you can stare at the words and they become mirrors—and you can see yourself.”

—   He Forgot to Say Goodbye by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

“Inanimate. That was one of Alejandra’s favorite words. She said a lot of guys’ hearts were inanimate. She loved saying that. Maybe she was right. Maybe my heart had become inanimate. Maybe that was just another way of saying ‘numb.’”

My good friend works with Ads Against Apartheid and they’re working to bring more awareness to this issue to the US. The MBTA (Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority) accepted their ads and then removed them not too long after because they went against their rules or something or other. The Boston Globe has the story. Check it out. Check out Ads Against Apartheid on Facebook

I didn’t look into the price of vibrators before drawing this, but $19.99 plus tax sounds reasonable to me for a standard model.

My boyfriend captured the “Student-calling-me-by-my-work-name-in-public” cringe quite accurately in that last panel!

Here’s a camping GPOY, because I like showing off my tattoo and my beer gut that I’ve somehow gotten after a lifetime of not drinking!

I took this photo of this handsome guy!

Went #camping this weekend in the deep of Maine. My boyfriend brought his family’s #canoe and we had quite a few trips rowing on the massive #lake. It was nice to detach from the world for a few days.
That’s a wrap! Another school year down and it was one for the books! This will probably be the last #bowtie picture for the next two months! Does not mean my Instagram will be empty, though!
