It’s days like today I remember why I always come back home to Los Angeles.
It’s a beautiful spring day, everything is in bloom, it’s sunny but there’s a quiet wind that feels amazing on the skin, bringing with it traces of serendipity and possibility all in one blow.

This poem was inspired by two large black and yellow butterflies. One of them visited me three times. Read more about the inspiration behind today’s poem on my blog: 11 : suck myself out the heart i give it back
Donate to Tupelo Press
For #NationalPoetryMonth, I’m fundraising on behalf of Tupelo Press, a small literary publisher. Tupelo’s 30/30 Project is an all-year monthly round of writing a poem a day. Check out their website and read the collection of poetry we’ve volunteered to write.
Enjoying the work I’ve been steadily producing? Let me know! I also encourage you to donate in my name to Tupelo Press. 100% of proceeds go to their literary press, it’s tax-deductible, and you’d be a patron of the arts.
Looking forward to tomorrow’s fresh batch of typewriter poetry for National Poetry Month. Thanks for following the adventure!
