Deviant of the Week

Nullibicity is one of the sweetest, kindest, and loveliest deviants i have ever known. she does so much for people and deserves more recognition for that (and as well for her lovely literature).

University

Thu Aug 27, 2015, 6:09 AM
Last week I moved into the University I'm currently attending. I had four days of orientation.

The first day, last Thursday, there was a matriculation ceremony (inducting us into the university; opposite of graduation) and at night there was some activity....I honestly forget now what it was.

Anyway, on Friday, we met with our Fiat Lux (freshman class) class and was forced to play games with everyone. It was to build teamwork skills and whatnot, but I was uncomfortable with it. During the rest of the day we had meetings with our advisers. (I'm a creative writing major, by the way.) I was happily surprised to see that there are four creative writing majors in my grade! That's a lot. Anyway, at night there was a Boardwalk kinda thing with food, games, and prizes. It was great. Also that night, I struck up enough courage to play a game with random people I didn't know. That was also fun.

On Saturday, we were all forced to go on a service trip. There wasn't really much to do and it wasn't hard..... It was just so hot because we had to wear pants and a long sleeved shirt (note: it was easily 90 F that day). So I painted a fence black for two hours. That night there was a luau, again with games, food, and prizes. I won a T-shirt from a sorting game and I won a mini-cart filled with food.  

On Sunday, we had an anit-rape, anti-drugs, driving safety, etc. seminar. Then the whole day was free to do whatever, so I hung out with my boyfriend and watched Game of Thrones. 

So far, I've had all my classes--Intro to Theatre, College Composition I, Intro to Psychology, Intro to Creative Writing, Intro to Computers, and Fiat Lux. 

Yesterday, I tried out for the school orchestra. It was awful. Of course, I was automatically accepted because there are a little less than 10 people in the orchestra. But, anyway, everyone was given warm-up music to play, music I've never seen before, and was expected to play it perfectly. I was still reading the notes and everything, so I hardly played a thing. Learning a song takes a couple hours for me, but perfecting one will take a day. So, I'm not going to be in the orchestra... Maybe the Jazz Band though because that seems cool.

For my creative writing class we've had our first assignment: write about a grudge. It was pretty fun, actually, and I'm happy to have had an assignment already. 

There's more to add but this journal is already pretty long so I'm going to end it here.

You can buy sensory deprivation

Tue Aug 11, 2015, 9:26 AM
Currently, Sensory Deprivation is available on the CreateSpace website and Amazon as a paperback. You can buy it here www.createspace.com/5501495 & www.amazon.com/Sensory-Depriva… .

If anyone is interested in buying ONLY an eBook copy let me know. That should be available soon. To those that want to buy a paperback copy and eBook copy -- the eBook copy you buy should be free if you buy the paperback copy first. 

I'm so excited that this is finally published! And if anyone is wondering it's only $6.00. It has 38 poems in it that took me a little over a year to write. I hope you're still interested in it enough to buy a copy!! Let me know if you do so I can personally thank you! 

It's also on goodreads if you're interested in rating/reviewing it. If you do either of those things, I thank you so, so much. www.goodreads.com/book/show/26…

There are a lot of people I have to thank for Sensory Deprivation's publication. First and foremost, thank you galaxssea for being a wonderful and supporting boyfriend throughout this process. 


Thank you chromeantennae, ithaswhatitisnt, Nullibicity, galaxssea, anobrain, sspeak, livewire-moon, insomniaplague, shehrozeameen, TristanCody, consolecadet, haphazardmelody, LadyLincoln, saltwaterlungs, Nichrysalis, and many more for being so supportive of me throughout the years, especially when it came to my poetry books. 

I'll never forget any of this. Thank you all so much.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, fuckme.jpg is available in paperback as well. It's different than the one posted on lovebullshit.weebly.com because I took at least 6 poems out, edited half of the poems, and added in a handful of new poems. You can buy it here www.createspace.com/5661852&nb… . Same thing goes for eBook copies. Let me know if you're interested.

Inspiration Feature

antonfrost is one of the most inspiring poets on this website. every poem he writes is beautifully intricate with a solid voice.

When my cat stares at meHe knows something
I don't--
it's as if he were there
for the building of the pyramids,
as if he lived through
the plagues,
watching horrors
unfold
and cities
burn while
calmly licking
his balls.
I stare back
and wonder how long
the zoo animals
watch each other
through the bars
at night
before looking
away.
He stares at me
through an elaborate diamond
of indifference.
I scratch his ear
to break the spell,
I pet him skull to spine,
quickly, the way a busboy
might smooth a tablecloth
or brush crumbs off a chair
at the end of his shift.
It doesn't work,
he keeps his eyes fixed on me
until I feel detached
from my body,
numb
as a block of wood,
waiting patiently for him
to clear the room
so I can burst
into flames.
I throw a coin
across the floor,
I knock on the wall
and yell WHO'S THERE?
His ears swivel
and his tail smacks the couch
but he won't look away.
Without taking my eyes off his
I scribble my finger
into the dust on the endtable--
I doodle an accidental
triangle aborted
into a a hi
duskas the river plumes
its dull reddish splurge
into the cold bluegreen
sheets of lakewater
as the bakers slip
into their beds
to be rested for
work long before the birds wake
as the sun dips its fringes
into the forest across the river
as the library closes
its doors
and flashes its lights
to dismiss stragglers
as the windows and the streets
swap light and shadow
as the alcoholics wake
and grope
for the unspilled bottle
on the carpet
like a warrior
reaching for his spear
as the church bells
clamor for the final hour
of confession
as the streetlights
flicker on
and the shop-windows
gutter into darkness
as the highway’s scream
lowers to a seething fume
as the third-shifters
drop their lunches
into wrinkled paper bags
as the busboys
sweep the last of the dishes
from the tables
as the beaches empty
and the houses fill
as the moon rises
like a soap bubble
over a fresh murder scene
as the stars twinkle into view
like the impossible
distance
of a stranger
bursting into tears
in front of y
