Favorite Quote:
"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."
-F.Scott Fitzgerald, the Great Gatsby

"To write it, it took three months; to conceive it three minutes; to collect the data in it all my life."
-F. Scott Fitzgerald

Find me.

The saccharine pain
Of seasalt raw on his tongue

Sand glazed over
Glass bottle.
Feet against
Crystalline murmurs.
Frayed white satin
Snagged on the calloused roughness
Of sweat-darkened, well-worked hands
And a dampened brow.
Veins of ink
In rocketing slather
Marred by wine-hued rust
And sibylline whispers.

Find me.
