I am entire buckets of trash when it comes to making shape poems. I can make three kinds of shape poems: Triangles, diamonds, and funnels. So, from now on, when someone says "shape poem," I'm doing text art. I may also be entire buckets of trash when it comes to text art, but I don't think my text art rates quite as many trash buckets as my attempts at shape poems.

It's probably obvious, but the "space oddity" line is a homage to David Bowie.

  1. Sigh.
    Too many of us carry those perpetual wounds.

    1. Whenever anyone tells me I'm not getting any younger and I need to look for a man before it's too late, I tell them that I'm going to get older regardless of whether I look for a man or not, and I'd rather spend my twilight years not having to cater to some asshole whose just going to abuse me anyway.


This is a safe space. Be respectful.
