Axiomatic – self-evident and unquestionable.
Furor Poeticus – In Greek thought, artistic inspiration meant that the poet would go into ecstasy or furor poeticus, the divine frenzy or poetic madness. They would be transported beyond their own mind and given the gods’ own thoughts to embody.
I’m a 28 year old poet from a small town in Pennsylvania. I’ve been writing poetry since elementary school and I’ve been serious about it for ten years. I am a typical millennial in a lot of ways, I grew up online, and here, I remain.
I have a long list that I tote around and consider my identity. I am: a poet, a woman, gay, demisexual, fat, sober and autistic. I consider my poetry to be queer-centric, feminist, womanhood-oriented, angry, honest, confessional and unconventional.
Each year, I participate in National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) which challenges poets to write (at least) one poem per day every April. I also participate in the annual Poetry Marathon, where poets around the world stay up together for 24 hours, writing one poem per hour.
I currently have two books available: Aurelia (2020) and Blake (2022). I hope my third collection will follow soon and I plan to spend most of this year submitting poems all over.
I spend most of my time online and watching television, but I also enjoy eating at restaurants, playing board games, going to events such as musicals, drag shows and open mics. I attended a community college for two years and have since been employed at a law firm. I am very involved in the Amanda Palmer Patreon community.
A list of things I love: Amanda Palmer, Allie X, Sylvia Plath, RuPaul’s Drag Race drag queens, Bishop Briggs, the game of Uno, LGBTQIA+ advocacy, social media, thirty specific movies, sloths, lemonade, streaming services, my friends, my drag race group chat on Twitter, meaningful feedback, making lists, septum rings and sleeping with the air conditioner on.
