suck myself out the heart i give it back
For this year’s National Poetry Month, I’m working on the poetry for my art book, suck myself out the heart i give it back. If you’re enjoying these poems, feel free to read about the concept or view the entire poetry collection.

This poem was inspired by thinking of how much roses have lost their scent in the last century, as well as walking with owners & dogs who misbehave. Read more about the inspiration behind today’s poem on my blog: 13 : suck myself out the heart i give it back
Donate to Tupelo Press
For #NationalPoetryMonth, Im 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, its tax-deductible, and you’d be a patron of the arts.
See you tomorrow for another round typewriter poetry for National Poetry Month!
