Like trees in winter:
tangled in our nakedness,
too fragile to speak.

Needle tips pine scales,
hands to the victor, rainy
promises, nightfall.

It is never quite as warm
as a winter night,
hands inches apart.

Funny how the truth
tastes like metal in your mouth,
how the knife can bend.

A dizzying thought:
an entire universe
can be held between my arms.

Never mind our friends,
your family, or knowing
what will break us.

My body became a crowded room;
yours, a locked church. A poppy seed.

Slam Nahuatl still needs your help! We have to raise $1200 more dollars over the next month to make it to CUPSI. We are selling these Nahuatl buttons for $5 to help get us there (but really you’re paying for our dreams, not a button, so no pressure). Find any member of @slamnahuatl (me, for example), and they will have a button for you! If you can spare anything, we REALLY need this money. πŸ‘πŸ’–πŸ‘


This is Pup. He’s a dingus, and I love him.

We are still trying to raise $800 to get our coaches to Boulder, CO with us in March. This team has been such a beautiful, powerful influence in my life, and if you have had the opportunity to hear my teammates perform, you know just how amazing they are. Every dollar helps, and if you can give anything (EVEN A REBLOG?!?!), it would warm our cold, dead poetry hearts.

If you would like to see Joshua and the rest of the team at CUPSI,Β CLICK HERE TO DONATE!

Hey, kiddos! I’m not actually back; I just wanted to let you know that I shot this video for Slam Nahuatl. Maybe you wanna like it? Reblog it? Donate because we are poor and you love us???

Blog switch?!?!?!

Hello, all 12 of my followers, I will be voyaging away from this url. I’m keeping my account but have to change blogs because (for personal reasons) I no longer feel 100% safe using my current badoodle. If any of you want the url to my new home of derpage, hit me up. Yo.

(You won’t really care, but I thought I should tell you, anyway…)

  1. Attempted scaring my husband coming home from work, he knew I was there
  2. I told him to go back and do it again, but to act scared this time!
  3. Instead of scaring him, apparently I airbended the crap out of him and it was so powerful that it knocked him to the ground
  4. This is why I love him

if you don’t think this is the sweetest thing ever you’re wrong

I just really enjoy how you scared the dog..

This is what I want… This is so perfect

I would totally do this
