Temple Marks

There are a few things on my body very few people know about. For example: I have an angel kiss on my ear. The inside of my mouth on both sides have little flabs of skin because of a nervous tick. There is a scar on one of my knuckles and I have no idea where it came from.

Today may in fact be the day I go one step further. You may never know what or where it is on my body, but its going to be there. And it will be just as wonderful as all the other marks my body has endured over the years. My little test of self. It won't be quick. And I am so very excited and so very frightened.

It's much like jumping off a diving board.

Dear Poetry,

I miss  you.


It's great, the idea of projecting yourself into masses of people and never being noticed. And for whatever reason I am compelled to do so. I am terrified that I have not nurtured my voice enough.

Maybe I'm just a little narcissistic, well, all actors are. I have missed capturing so many moments and now so many are lost. I have forgotten so many poems and there are so many people I don't recall the names of. "Jazz and Junk" is to help me remember.
