all alone a flower
even the shadows of mountains
tangled hair

all things
break the halcyon slumber
all alone a flower
the galaxy

Well hello, friends. The new semester is about to start and I'm here to share that even faculty get anxious about it. 😐

a day of haze
o snail
even among the stars

when i have gone away
this, that
below the ice

HALP I'm falling WAY behind in ... Somebody encourage me QUICK :pen: :page: 😐

I have a literal ton of work-related things to do, and I should be prepping for , so of course I wrote a blog post about erasure poetry and it's here:
