My self-summary
Partnered and monogamous, thus looking for friends.

I recently noticed my roomate updated his profile to demonstrate not only show off his prose (exhibitionist) but the complexity of his heart, soul, and thought (all things I secretly admire). Here is my attempt:

I believe in astrology in the same way children who successfully play house believe in parenting. When I was younger, because I was the youngest at the time and the roles of mother and father were taken, I played the cat. I love animals. My first real pet was black cat with smoky fur named Duchess. Duchess was a he. He was one of the only cats that I have met that has fulfilled my personal credo: to love and be loved. Since his departure my heart throbs mostly the sight of dogs. My family dog is a Yorkie named Oedipus who I rescued off the street. I never thought I would have a purse dog but now I understand why certain people and animals go together.

I read and write poetry. I obsess over social media (because my friends are everywhere) and volunteer for an internationally acclaimed poetry journal as an on-call Facebook and Twitter junkie (Tumblr not so much). There is one book I read nearly week of my life and if you ask kindly I will share its name with you. This should go without saying, but it is an blessing to have even lived just this once.

Long live the contortion of the sacred and profane.

All music without words.

The six things I could never do without
My books and my friends who seem to continuously write themselves and make my world appear, rodie soadies, tight jeans, loose-fitting shirts, and the world vast and free collection of online porn.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Psychological Schematics and Postmodernism.
How one of side of the internet manages to remain right-wing.
How the internet has sides.
How my black grandmother reposted Donald Trump on Facebook.
Horse girls, tostadas, books that are tall and skinny. Twitter speak.
On a typical Friday night I am
Buying a book I can't afford to support an artist I love.
Destroying someone else's liquor cabinet.
Taking long, slow breathes as I step into the party.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I pick my nose sheepishly.
You should message me if
You have resources, time, and the aptitude to acquire more vices. You have the ability to become instant friends. If you like books. If you want to talk politics, global communication networks, archives, authenticity, or financial collapse. If you consume moderately high amounts of whiskey (as in almost daily and definitely on the weekends).

Side note: Feminism.
