Aww damn, I love this so hard.
I shared a poem or three of yours (because I couldn’t pick just one) in my creative writing class, when we were supposed to bring in a favorite poem, and my instructor was floored. Heh heh. I may have bragged just a little that I knew you PERSONALLY, that we went to school together. And he said, “A poem like that makes you want to write, doesn’t it.” And I said “All of his stuff does!” and he said, “Make sure you tell him that.” So I’m telling you and I hope you see this. Because I lost you on Facebook again. I’ll keep reminding you how great and lovely you are. ๐Ÿ˜‰ xo

Oh wow! This touches and warms my heart. To know my poems reach you like this. I think your teacher has inspired you, too. I hope you keep writing.
I deleted FB but I am here, on IG, and Signal!


IG, is that what you kids call Instagram? Hmmm. I don’t know what signal is. Smoke signals? How quaint! I’m glad you’re in this space. Know I’m lurking and watching. ๐Ÿ˜‰
(In the spirit of Halloween. Come November, I’ll just be quietly admiring from over yonder.)
