Fiery breath smokes the air.
I inhale through my mouth and hold the air fast,
And hold myself still.
My eyes roll backwards as my shoulder stretches,
Strumming a tendon into tremors
producing in me
trembles from the
Shades drawn tight against the sky’s night.
Cicadas chirpin’ lazy protest.
I espy a note on my coffee table:
“Ruin your own show. Don’t feed me soft words, when my eyes go hard.”
My cheeks burn vermillion in the morning air.
I will wear my hair straight today.
I am fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer.
With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills.
I am excited to share. Thank you for spending time here.
Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.
