Hanging on to those family vibes.

I wrote this back in June while celebrating the craft of poetry with a beautiful group of people at the magical home of @litaalbuquerque in Malibu. Casting a continuous spell of protection around that home now, and around all of the other places, creatures, and people threatened by the burn of these current fires. There is nothing beautiful about this loss and destruction.

Sometimes, life tangles everything up and there’s always a lesson wrapped into the craze. I threw my back out the other day and it’s been a doozy. Unfortunately, I’m unable to make it to Portland for the 10 year anniversary release of @boneshakeralmanac tonight. I was planning on reading poems and celebrating this beautiful collection that honors the bicycle, but when the body says stay home, I have to listen. Our bodies are amazing teachers. The lessons this time around have been about family trauma and money. I’m deep in these Scorpio waters and grateful for the immense privilege of the time and space needed for doing this work. If you’re in Portland tonight, please go say hello and support the magic of @boneshakeralmanac!

What an amazing weekend of work. Thank you @i_am_other and @mtv for inviting me to speak and write poems for you. Thank you @itzdv for believing in me and @pharrell for your incredible vision. As artists in this world, our fearless disruption and unapologetic exploration is more important than ever. It’s an honor to show up and offer inspiration with my story and my poetry. I’m beyond grateful for every opportunity that allows me to bring my craft to more and more people.

Trying to start the day in the weight of grief and then my soulmate’s book arrives on my doorstep and not only is it INCREDIBLE that she wrote this magical book, but she dedicated it to me and included my daily ideal in its pages. I love you @marleegrace and I thank you for sharing your inspiring spirit with us all, through hardship and confusion, through pain and transformation. I celebrate this little book as a large gift of love this morning and I couldn’t be more grateful for our friendship.

May look like a costume, but these are actually just my clothes. Contra dance thrift store dress, mom’s knife on my belt, cowgirl hat / cow girl boots that I wore while riding mustangs in the desert for years. Sometimes Halloween returns us to our roots? Typing poems tonight at the same LA party that I’ve written at four years in a row. Thin veil, better poems. 🔮🍭🦂

I am Scorpio. I am an only child. I am an ecstatic earth worshiper. I am every kind of empath. I am an animal. I am a survivor of sexual abuse. I am in love with being alive. I am a channel. I am willing to change. I am not interested in having children. I am a highly sensitive person. I am in love with all of my best friends. I am a firm believer in therapy. I am full of spitfire & elation. I am not afraid to be the student. I am ritualistic & spontaneous. I am mean & kind. I am in love with my dragon -//- Photo, magic leaf, and unconditional love by the one who brings out my sweetness @elenastonaker

I tried to record this poem four times this morning. There’s a line in it about me biting my phone and cracking the screen. Well, that just happened again. If you want to hear me read without technology getting in the way, come out this Thursday evening, Oct 25th, @thestandard Hollywood, 8pm with poets @derrickbrownpoetry & @jesssabug for an evening of passionate self-expression and voter inspiration.

Written in less than a minute during my workshop last night @twobunchpalms, under the echo of a dome in the desert, stars brilliant above us.
