A bespoke poem or short story also makes a dazzling gift for your loved ones-- whether romantic, platonic, or somewhere in-between!

(Cheaper than skydiving classes!)

:plural_heart:​ poetry 

We speak aloud with our only tongue;
many voices plied in ever-growing
interwoven ribbon-threads--
each colour its own story
in the grand display. Within it
all are whole; each colour sings
nothing but harmonies.

Finally got my flash creative nonfiction piece, Passing Buses, up on my site! Originally published in Ayaskala Magazine in July.

mini rant 

When a magazine charges $9.99 to submit, AND charges its readers to read, AND doesn't pay anything for work, you know it's a waste of time

Birdsite mention 

I really with Fediverse could see Sparknotes' tweets

Request for feedback, Trans Day of Remembrance

Childhood/ Sibling story (in a good way) 

My sister just told me about a story I made up for her when she was about 6 called Baldilocks And The Three Pears, where baldilocks was a bald teenager who broke into the 3 Pears' house and ate them and stole all their stuff. I might have to have another go at that one.

Whining 

I haven’t had anything published in over a month 😭

Granted, in that month I’ve only sent out a handful of subs because I spent half of it running away from The Death Cloud, but still. It can feel like it’s more work to get my writing out into the world than it is to write it in the first place.

Offering/selling rabbit manure 

Is there anyone into composting who’d like a constant and plentiful source of rabbit manure?

We can do *at least* a pound or two a week, possibly mixed in with pine litter or newspaper and small amounts of spilled Timothy or Alfalfa hay (neither of which are included in the weight estimate).

Would make for fantastically rich compost/fertilizer and doesn’t smell nearly as bad as other manures. Donations would be great—make me an offer! Can also consider trades.

anyone in the #portland area looking for a roommate? I can pay $400 in rent

i need to move out of a very abusive housing situation before being evicted from not vacuuming and mopping everyday (yes this is serious)

boosts are appreciated! :boost_ok:

thank you!

Where are my radical #anarchist #indigenous folx at???? Where my gun-toting, ceremony-holdin’, drumming and singing in the streets #natives at??? Where my tiny house warrior supporting natives at? Where my blocking train tracks through the reserve folx at? I am still learning to navigate this forum but I feel like there has to be more people here than what I’m finding.
