Summer, has always been a woman to me. she loved me once, treated me with care once, but i scorned her in my adolescence. wasted my time inside drinking, and now, i pay for it with never feeling comfortable in her midst. i miss her. the warmth. today, there is still only the hot hot heat. she has not forgiven me and i will wait patiently here, n***d of pride and dresses in humility.
When @macmillanusa approached me in march and said they wanted to do a book with me, i was blown away. honoured. ecstatic. but when they suggested this little piece as the title, i was perplexed. but they had been following me for a while and thought this was the best one that summed up my journey through melancholy. that’s what this book is all about. a going back to the purpose of poetry. all melancholy. all the time. can i get a heck ya! link in bio to preorder. comes out sept 18.
Many thanks to chris at @sailorjacksbarbellgarage for taking on the monumental task of whipping my lazy a*s into shape. exercise has been missing from my recovery for nearly 3 years. so i’m looking forward to working with chris and his team of fine professionals and making a solid go at doing something with my body. @roseclu will be joining me on this journey as well. stay tuned for progress pics and my f*t a*s before pic!
