My self-summary
I'm a pretty strange cat - open minded, sincere, loyal, and always curious. I am a poet and mystic, my world is rather unlike the deterministic paradigm mainstream culture conditions us to accept. I take joy from the simple and profound alike, trying to remain positive without developing illusions. I'm generous with my resources, time, and affecton, even when I have very little to share.

I'm a dark side poet, and my poetry is an important aspect of my personality. I was first published when I was 8 in Highlights magazine and have continued writing at a fairly consistent pace since. Most of it's junk and has been left thoughtlessly scattered behind me like wasteful punctuation - scribbled on paper bags and left in phonebooths. Scribbled on phonebooths. Tucked inside jackets at the salvation army. Stuffed into furniture left out with the trash in the alley. Just screaming into the void. My professional examples and personal heroes have all been nonconformist, experimental, drugged out, mad, vulgar, frustrated, radical, really beautiful poets. If you're interested I'd love to tell you about it

I'm nonmonogamous, which doesn't mean i'm a huge slut or that I don't take relationships seriously, but it does mean that if you're only interested in a man who you can settle down and breed with I'M NOT FOR YOU; but if you want to pull beautiful dreams out of each other's minds, go wild off a bottle, break into the alley-walk like burrowing underground, talk for hours (or days) about possible metaphysical models or rapidly organized adventures; go to the disco, grab a slice, get stupid off the radical spliff unrolled, or just exchange some friendly messages - I got you on that

i sound like i take myself pretty seriously, but i've got a sense of humor too and enjoy flippancy.
What I’m doing with my life
learning, laughing, further refining my intuition, distinguishing will from desire and peace from defeat.

strugglin along with service industry gigs, looking for investors and a partner to set up a black box theatre venue in the east end.

I'm not known for worldly ambition or love of conventional success. If you're one of those girls to whom it is critical that a man have - and love - money, you probably don't really exist anyway and should leave me alone.
I’m really good at
storytelling, keeping my cool, martial arts, reading people, leading people, rhythm section, saxophone, daydreaming, conversation, bringing enthusiasm to a group, solving problems, creative catharsis, board games, confusing people...
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my voice, my piercings

Six things I could never do without
Survival necessities and human companionship. I do very well "without"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Future
The Past
On a typical Friday night I am
In a bar loudly discussing cosmology, not making sense to anyone, then home writing about my own psychic earthquakes not making sense to myself.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Dirty/Clean fetish
You should message me if
You are not mutated

OR if you have a really fun mutation
The two of us
