suck myself out the heart i give it back

April 5th, 2016


Today’s poem was inspired by finding a toenail clipping in your food.

If you’re curious, I wrote a brief backstory about today’s poem: 05 : suck myself out the heart i give it back

For #npm16, I’m working on a poetry series which is part of a larger project: an art book called suck myself out the heart i give it back. You can view the entire collection:

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 for the Tupelo Press 30/30 Project.


Enjoying the work I’ve been steadily producing? It’s for my upcoming art book, suck myself out the heart i give it back. You can read more about the project here. I also encourage you to donate in my name to Tupelo Press. 100% of proceeds go to their literary press, and it’s tax-deductible!
