Just a simple PDF, “Honestly” is the first chapter of the four-part poetry series, YOU vs. ME.
I designed the cover with SketchBook.
gung ho – hung tho
i missed the lilacs bloom this year
their sweetness and purple color.
Dumbass Me. Can’t believe it.
hooked into a jack ass with
ass for days
nothing near as sweet as spring
so i passed the lilacs a dozen times i bet
one night i go outside just me
i drop everything i can let go
in the grass
no phone keys wallet
it’s just me out there with restless crickets
so i missed the flowers and became a kid
hosed out my stamina wheel
left the block breathless
i sat in a cemetery before work
on a bench by the service berries
white petal perfume
pure and delicate.
I saw Space Balls before I saw Star Wars
I’m so stoked for this news. I didn’t think it would happen anytime soon, let alone this year!
Here it is on Spotify! ❤
At work the other day, a coworker and I talked about how tired and prone to mistakes we were.
I said something my old history teacher used to say, “I’m a few sandwiches short of a full picnic.”
My coworker thought I said “you’re a few inches short of a full dick pic.”
Just got off work at the music venue. It was an all-ages show so they have to be done at 10.
The crowd didn’t do anything (hardly even danced) it was slow as hell for us. I walked around the club looking for something to do, making sure bartenders and whoever else didn’t need anything.
The person who was Head of Security for the night came up and said, “Eva, there are two huge piles of puke at the door.”
I said, “Sweet, I’m on it.”
And you know those big ole yellow mop buckets you see when the store is closing?
He said, “you’re going to need two buckets.”
Other than that, work was pretty boring tonight. Fine by me.
This year has been wild! Lots of personal developments, lots of career developments.
One of my goals for this year was to finish recording an album, but I got together with a few pals and decided it’s best to make an EP of the songs I wrote this past year. We’ll play a few shows, and then work on the full-length. I’m calling the band Help Desk.
Buffalo Sleeper is recording a new EP as well and we’re almost finished! I was supposed to record my vocal track yesterday but I got a cold 😦
I didn’t get accepted into most of the poetry competitions I applied for, which is okay. I like applying because it forces you to focus on deadlines and make new work. Still waiting on a couple to respond.
Hope you’re well,
