My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Will be in San Francisco from the 24th-1st. If you want to explore your city with me or get tea, let's talk. Back in NYC, where I reside, after that.

You are a horse running alone
and he tries to tame you
compares you to an impossible highway
to a burning house
says you are blinding him
that he could never leave you
forget you
want anything but you
you dizzy him, you are unbearable
every woman before or after you
is doused in your name
you fill his mouth
his teeth ache with memory of taste
his body just a long shadow seeking yours
but you are always too intense
frightening in the way you want him
unashamed and sacrificial
he tells you that no man can live up to the one who
lives in your head
and you tried to change didn’t you?

closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
prettier
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do love
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love.

Bread

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
if making this entire profile quotes from Warsan Shire would scare people away or lead to wondrous things.
where the missing socks end up.
the marginalization of indigenous peoples.
eco-feminism.
beauty found in imperfection.
holding space.
artful precision in language.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
going to bizarre performances that are debatable as art.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am left handed and have a left handed can opener.
I don't consume caffeine.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-you want to make things with me, food? art? memories?
-you want to go places with me, parks? museums? art shows? mountains?
-you want to share things that you care passionately about with me.
- you thoughtfully consider your actions and how you structure things in your life and veer away from normative paths.
-ladies: lesbian sheep syndrome (I'm not a lesbian it's just a phrase (I'm also not a sheep)) is totally a real thing and we should all combat it by being politely blunt about our flirting.
-you're interested in meeting up in person after a brief series of messages, please understand, I'm pretty busy so it may take some time for things. patience is good. I'm so confused when people 100000 miles away message me.
-you have animals I can play with.

please note: if you send me a message asking what a word on my profile means (google it!), or something that is a generalized message you sent to everyone, it is most likely I will roll my eyes and discard your message. I'm thoughtful in my communication and I expect the same in return.
