Day 7: Daily Batch of Typewriter Poetry

Though it doesn’t seem like a conscious choice, I notice all the poems for today have a sense of urgency or rebellion about them. And also: the colors associated with heat. Perhaps summer is not as benign as we make it out to be.






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.

Today’s poem was my second choice, as I’m saving the original idea for another day.

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!
