Officially I'm a grad student in Comparative Literature, but I'm trying to push myself to tell people I'm a poet. A writer once told me that the way to begin believing in yourself as a writer is to call yourself one.
I also travel a lot, and have to date lived in Australia, Spain, Italy, France, and the U.S.
I'm not too shabby at cooking either; I just bought a Dutch oven and I'm already obsessed.
Oh, and inappropriate humour. Very, very inappropriate.
Everywhere: the fact that I look a lot like Tim Curry. This upsets my mother a lot, and I don't know why.
"J'ai tendu des cordes de clocher à clocher; des guirlandes de fenêtre à fenêtre; des chaînes d'or d'étoile à étoile et je danse."
"But know your hair was bound and wound
About the stars and moon and sun..."
"Quiero comer tu piel como una intacta almendra."
Music: I have very eclectic tastes. I listen to a lot of Classical, Trance, and Rock/Indie.
Movies: Star Wars, The Wedding Crashers, Eight and a Half, Apocalypse Now, Stranger Than Fiction, Bright Star.
Shows: Archer, Community, Futurama, Game of Thrones, New Girl, Sherlock, How I Met Your Mother.
Food: Many, many things, particularly Indian and Mexican...
A collection of poetry, preferably an anthology since I can never choose just one;
Sex: unoriginal, yes, but it's true and I won't lie about it;
Single malt scotch;
A cat to keep me some badass company.
How we present ourselves; the roles we play.
"We are experiments; let us also want to be such."
Lately, and not entirely by choice, the disgusting political state of most of the world.
Why the poets have been so inexcusably silent on the subject of garlic.
That or at a bar with friends. I used to say here that I go clubbing but... Providence has kinda ground that out of me. Where does one find decent music and space to dance in this city?!
But oh! Please don't tell anyone!
Also, you're not necessarily after anything serious or exclusive. Also, you know the difference between manipulating people for selfish ends, and playful, sensual, mutual pleasure. I'm all about the latter, but I don't tolerate the former.
