I'm losing my mind over this one poem its clawing at my head and begging to be written out properly but its still only the bones of the thing. I have to re-arrange, strike, there are still lines that need to be added.

I started listening to this book and its so so overwhelming. Like white people just feel like that all the time? Every story is about women from my city, whose families all work like mine, talk like mine, look like mine, live like mine.

There was this one description I'll loosely relay that was "I already knew what was in three pots on the stove. Beans, green chili, and menudo. Weddings, funerals, graduations, birthdays, that part of the menu is always the same" and it made me so emotional.

Even if the stories are fictional it felt so weird to have someone cut me open and stuff me with dollar store craft mirrors.

I have been writing less than I usually do the last three months and now its actually spilling from like a bad gutter on the side of the house.

I was reading Whitman for a while.

I got through the epics that lead off Leaves of Grass at least.

Read A Season in Hell as well because I read another book that said Rimbaud was Patti Smith’s favorite poet.

I have a favorite line from A Season in Hell.

It has been found again! – What? – Eternity. It is the sea mingled with the sun.

Whitman was actually next on my reading list but I ended up reading a book about southern housewives killing a vampire.

I like knowing other peoples favorite poets and such, I read one of those massive "best of women poets" collections that Steve Buscemi really likes Mary Oliver. Haunts me but in a good way.

I read the Divine Comedy and would kind of like to read it again.

I think I need to reread Paradise at least.

Ah Inferno has always been my favorite, I read it in high school so it wormed into my brain

Can I ask if you are genuine new person?

It seems unlikely.

But I guess possible.

I don’t think you would tell me if you weren’t.

Well. I’m always curious if people in general are genuine and pursuing that knowledge is something that I strive towards but what I meant was are you A genuine new person.

Yeah. It’s really curious to me how someone would stumble on YT in today’s day and age.

Yeah, it's not like people type "i am bored" into browsers anymore

I just tried that- - YT isn't one of the results...

But I am bored was a sister site. I think that’s done though. I think they moved to Reddit.

r/snorkblot or something.

I have no idea what that means though.
