I do not guarantee customer satisfaction on anything that isn't poetry.

                          Over here is good.

Now in order to justify the uselessness that you have just witnessed I'm going to actually talk about something, so hold your breath. 

I, Demosthenes, am in need of some reading to nuzzle into. Yes, I have read so far into my own dwindling supply that I actually ran out. I will read anything as long as it has words. In fact, screw that, I'll read anything.

I just finished reading The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath and for those of you who are familiar with her or her work, I would recommend reading it between buckets of ice cream and therapy. It is essentially autobiographical, despite the changed names and fiction label. It deals with mental illness in the 50's for the young Plath and for anyone who does not know what it is like to go through with mental illness, and everyone who does (myself included) it is a pretty damn apt description.

Anyhow, nice talking. Love you all 'mwah'

^ Reading Dostoyevsky's 'The Idiot' in a park whilst using makeshift furnishing.

Allow me to begin honestly. I am unfinished, like the rest of you. Perhaps even barely a beginning.

I was raised on soul butter, in a world where some larders are just crumbs.

I have been writing profusely to navigate the world. My pages are my sails.

My own sea is one that has been diagnosed with mental disorders and the ships are all flooding.

Simply put, I am a human before I am a writer. I will drown for you in my head if that's what it takes.

Why do I do it this way, you ask?

To involve everyone in filling themselves with something other than things or careers or loathing or injustice.

To expose what we conceal in closed walls or wars or muscle or in that crackly pile of leaves that are our memories.

Love and truth, let the rest come full brunt and hurt me as it does.

Now a question for you: Why not?

"The world is paradise, and as soon as everyone realizes this, paradise will be established across all the world tomorrow." -Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov.

Keep writing and one day when we're old and our names our held against the night sky I'll say I knew you when you were just a budding poet.
