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.
“Honestly” is the first chapter of the four-part poetry series, YOU vs. ME. Part 2, “You’re Better Off” available to read here.

Thank you so much for reading!
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,
A random guy at a bar once gave me advice about job hunting.
“Apply for jobs you don’t think you’ll get. The hiring manager might see something in you that you don’t see.”
I bring that advice with me as I update my resume in my pajamas.
I make food these days to feel like I’ve finished something.
Just letting you know that I’ll be posting fewer poetry posts from now on. I’m working on submitting my work to various lit mags & such, and most of them do not accept previously published poems.
