Thanks everyone for the kind birthday wishes! It was a fun one:) Also, my people get me- this birthday card is everything 🎯🎯🎯 I'm going to try my hardest to live this year like this rainbow sheep. #gaygoals #rainbowsheep #leaderofthepack
Happy belated National Coming Out Day! I would have posted something yesterday but I was too busy delivering my "gay agenda" [also known as poetry] across rural Wisconsin. Today is also exciting because it is The Day I Entered Earth Day which means I have spun across this wild & twisting world 31 times! So a cheers to you & me for still being here; what a magic & blessing that is. And a cheers to Peter Pan & Tinkerbell for teaching me how to fly as well as teaching me when to say "fuck off" to anyone who says I can't. Let this be the year of soaring. I'll see you up there, well beyond the stars & clouds. #secondstartotheright #libraseason #itsmybirthday #nationalcomingoutday #poetrytour #lgbtqi #yearofsoaring #dontletanyonesayyoucant
Thank you University Wisconsin @Green Bay for showing me a good time & being an amazing crowd! Me being the true selfie wizard that I am missed half the crowd but with practice maybe I'll improve. Also, having a "star" dressing room was cute but I'm definitely not. Like not even in the realm of close lol. #poetrytour #nacacircuit #wisconsinbound #poetrytravel
It is currently 4am & I'm attempting to take a shitty selfie (I genuinely suck at them) while drugged up on Walgreens cold & flu & every flavor cough drop I could find while waiting to board a flight to Milwaukee so I can drive to @University of Wisconsin @ Green Bay tonight, Madison Tech tomorrow & then @University of Wisconsin @ Whitewater. I'm tired, I'm sickly, but more than that I feel full of joy & excitement & am grateful to go do poetry all over-- even in places where temps drop to the 30s at night, although the clothing I have packed says it can only handle about 72 degrees. #Poetrytour #nacacircuit #wisconsinbound #poetrytravel
I don't know why he likes to find the sunniest part of the yard during the hottest part of the day and sun bathe for at least 30min. He is crazy- it's like 107 out there! #maximusthegreatdane #sunbathingdog #doglife🐾
There are days when the earth appears to be hourglass / when I don't know if each grain represents a minute or a year / but on those days / when I'm not sure if I'm closer to being alive / or dead / I look out the window & /
remind myself / that if the sun has been alive for over five-billion years / then my time is just beginning / that if a whale can hold their breath for over ninety-minutes while swimming / then I can at least breathe a little longer on land /
the world has always seemed so big to me / & then I look at the palm of my hand & think / even in smallness can't I, too, be great? / aren't I part of the spin of the planet as well? /
I look to the sun for an answer / the sun looks back at me & says /
I wouldn't shine for anything less.

There is nothing like being back in #Austin. Sometimes this city makes me crazy & other times it makes me proud. This was a proud moment. :) #bathroomart #mohawksvenue
She had some horses.
She had horses who were bodies of sand.
She had horses who were maps drawn of blood.
She had horses who were skins of ocean water.
She had horses who were the blue air of sky.
She had horses who were fur and teeth.
She had horses who were clay and would break.
She had horses who were splintered red cliff.
She had some horses.
She had horses with eyes of trains.
She had horses with full, brown thighs.
She had horses who laughed too much.
She had horses who threw rocks at glass houses.
She had horses who licked razor blades.
She had some horses. - Joy Harjo

Late night street art. Each fragment of his face is a page of a story. Some lives are novels & others sagas. The way he is forever faced towards the ocean makes me feel like his is one of legend. #Portugal #graffiti #streetart
