Lisa, 22, feminist, jewish (and badly agnostic). To the best of my ability to determine, my sexual orientation is "sprung rhythm" and my gender expression is "fabulous badger". (She/her/hers pronouns are fine.)

EMT, aspiring PA. Poetry, intersectional feminism, Pacific Rim, Night Vale, Circle of Magic, language, biology, and eclectic nerdery. Whovian blogging will resume when Moffat stops fucking everything up.

If it involves dragons or iambic pentameter, you'll probably find it here.

ghostington:

Love at the lips was touch
As sweet as I could bear;
And once that seemed too much;
I lived on air

That crossed me from sweet things,
The flow of- was it musk
From hidden grapevine springs
Down hill at dusk?

I had the swirl and ache
From sprays of honeysuckle
That when they’re gathered…

This is what my husband and I purchased at the grocery store the other day.

We don’t have kids.

We are adults. We pay bills.
And drink water from a whale.

I craved strong sweets, but those
seemed strong when I was young;
The petal of the rose
It was that stung.

Roses are sweet,
But soft meat crowns are better.
But before I can make one,
I give you: The Weather.

“A large school of mobula rays fades into the waters of Baja, Mexico. “The rays were moving quite fast and it was hard enough keeping up with them from the surface, let alone diving down to take a closer look,” writes photographer Eduardo Lopez Negrete. Mobula rays are often referred to as flying rays due to their fondness for breaching.” — the 2014 National Geographic Traveller Photo ContestLet’s also keep in mind that a mobula ray can reach 17 foot (5.2 meter) wingspan and weigh over a ton. Freaky or cool?

I’m really bad at iambic pentameter tho
What makes you say that? Have you had bad iambic pentameter experiences in the past? I’m genuinely curious, because I know a lot of…

dude. enjambment is my *jam*. (which is a thing I say to people. because I am an insufferable nerd.)

I need to get back into writing sonnets. they’re never any good but they’re so fun. I feel like sonnets must be to poetry types what scales are to musicians. this is the basis, this is the foundation, everything you do must be informed by the existence of this even if you do not abide by its form.

(sorry I just finished cloud atlas and I am book-drunk)
