poetry: 2 weeks notice

This poem is pretty self-explanatory and was written during a time last fall where I felt trapped and couldn't write (or think) about anything else.

Gently polishing wine glasses behind the bar with music blasting... Continue Reading →

Quarantine Notebook

Photo by Kenny karlys on Unsplash A window into these past few months. Written mostly in the spring. My personal holding pattern looks like waking up seven minutes before work, afternoon naps on the couch, wandering around Trader Joe’s with no plan, and drinking a beer in the shower while listening to “clubby” music.
