Purging Demons as Word Porn

(Three months ago I posed for Archan Nair's digital portrait. Used with artist's permission.) 


I'm okay. Really.

In a few days I'll begin posting exciting (and less melodramatic) content with @piedpiper for our new production company in Chile. Until then, I'm going to use Steemit to purge my most cynical creations from the last few months.

I haven't shared these snippets with anyone, but after the positive response to my odd, provocative poem, I figured Steemit would be a safe place to post.

Feedback welcome.

I tried out the format for a few book quotes, too:

Need more of this on Steemit! :)

I want to do everything I can to help Steemit become a place for artists to share their work and earn some money. Glad you liked it!

Wow! "first date" is very strong. Thank you for being open and vulnerable @jakevanderark :)

I haven't been this vulnerable in 32 years. Maybe that's why this hit me so hard ; )

More professional work is coming soon, I swear. Thanks for the feedback!

Your poetry is very nice

Thanks, @kita : ) I hope to post more in the next few days!

ok sir, I wait :D

Really like these. "True heartbreak" is particularly concise and sharp in a funny way.

These mirror my current mood.

Uhg... that one still sorta makes me sick. Sorry you've been going through something similar...

You had me at Game of Thrones :)

Ha! Can't wait for next season... with or without her ; )
