I wallow in the ashes of childhood
and emerge in flames
something like an adult
again, and again, eternal,
ever-dying and immortal:

the abyss my guide, my path,
my constant companion,
anger the wings that keep me
above, where light can touch,
the desperate fury of a life
that fears how gentle is death

love that can find joy in anger-
heat and pressure both-
and, with kindly alchemy,
reminds eternal dusk to be
sometimes, or always,
the promise of a dawn to come

I’m actually honest-to-god quoting myself, oh how far I have fallen

I ain’t livin’ right

I am like a hunk of carbon
made sharp and clear as ice
by pressure and heat
painful, like birth is painful
for parent and child both

I am no theist- even so,
like the Ancients I prepare
on my altar, sacrifice
to Chaos, and to Order entreaty-

heat, and pressure,
to force my slippery sheets of mind
to something crystalline and hard,
beautiful and rough

long nights, and stimulants,
and self-imposed exile
to the purgatory of
my own examination

I wallow in the ashes of childhood
and emerge in flames
something like an adult
again, and again, eternal,
ever-dying and immortal:

the abyss my guide, my path,
my constant companion,
anger the wings that keep me
above, where light can touch,
the desperate fury of a life
that fears how gentle is death

love that can find joy in anger-
heat and pressure both-
and, with kindly alchemy,
reminds eternal dusk to be
sometimes, or always,
the promise of a dawn to come

I use he pronouns. Don't show me pictures with creepy faces in them.

I post a lot about linguistics, some silly shit- cat gifs and the like- whiny text posts, things that make me angry, and every once in a while a good song.

I also run a blog called Misandrist Music as my drag persona, Ms. Andrea Dworkit. It's exactly what it says on the label. You should check it out!
