Poem 009: Moth on the Window


It's a moth on the window,
trying to reach light
separated by glass pane,
a wall holding back small body
in the glow-speckled dark
from what lies ahead.
A brightness cascading
in precise angles,
warming at the edges,
clarifying what the speckles

the unyeilding translucence.
It doesn't know how to pass
what all seems to be so

An Autumn Fashion Wishlist 2017


Hnnnng you guys don't even know how hyped I am about autumn fashion. I just spent more than I care to admit on flannels this past weekend, and I regret nothing. Besides, they were on sale. I always tell myself I'm going to go all out with fashion once the cooler seasons hit, but then I'm sleepy and wanna be warm and become a cozy little ball of ugly. I am determined af to be fine as hell this autumn. I need to trick myself in buying clothes that are comfy and warm while still showing how cute and bougie I am. Here's a few things I've found:
