straight to dvd

i am the hero
of my own story
i am also the arch nemesis
as well as several supporting roles
and many of the cameos…
& i am painfully aware
that my story
will go straight to dvd.

i know that i am not popular and have no aspirations to make it to the mainstream…but i also know that i keep myself pretty fucking entertained. and i am eternally grateful to those of you out there who get me…or at least appreciate me.

this was the last page in the reflections journal that i started last fall. i inked on almost every page (some pages were used to make notes about projects, etc.) these journals take a lot of abuse.

a muse ing

mental health
is a loyal muse
she never wanders
far
away
& seemingly
is quite easily
summoned
sometimes just
by a song on the radio
or a careless word
mental health
is an accommodating muse
willing to wait
with open arms
for you
to
crawl
back to her.

i have a friend who got a mental health diagnosis &, fortunately, has herself submerged in a writer’s workshop…so she immediately wrote it into a story.
i love that.
i love people using what could knock them over to, instead, create.
which is one reason i am starting a group of creators (writers & artists) to come together as a community to support & encourage & listen.
i am pretty excited…or, rather, terrified about it.
but i’m doing it.
