World Poetry Day

Hola amigos reflexivos, and happy World Poetry Day!

Poetry has been many things to me through my life. It has helped me learn more about the English language, it has been therapeutic, and a new way of exploring the world around me, both in reading and writing.

I still remember hiding in the library, afraid to let anyone see what I was writing. Not that they would have been able to see of course, because I have the worst handwriting the world has ever seen. I never imagined sharing my work with anyone, because I thought I’d seem self absorbed, strange or dramatic, but I have been able to overcome that and begin showing the world what I’m working on, and for that, I’m thankful.

I have uploaded some new poems, that I hope you will enjoy reading, and I hope you have a wonderful day of reading and writing.

Besos,

Portraits From The Pier

Hola amigos reflexivos,

I hope you had a wonderful February.

I celebrated my birthday by the sea, and had a wonderful time doing so. It was such a beautiful environment, and it inspired so much creativity, which I have been able to share with you.

Below is a new set of poems, some written while I was away, and some written on my return. I hope you enjoy them!

I’ve also added PDF versions of everything on this page.

I also wanted to to clarify, as I did have a lot of tweets and instagram comments about this. I am not engaged. I did get a ring for Valentine’s day, but it was only a platonic gift. I’m not actually seeing anyone right now, and from my earlier accounts of how awful it is to date me, I’m sure you can see why.

Besos,

Penman Paramour

¿ Que esperabas?
Death of the author.
Muse defies command,
twisted your plot twist.

Divorce my description,
no fixed fantasy.
I’m unerasable,
but I’ve walked off the page.

#FREEKESHA

Hola amigos reflexivos,

I hope you are doing okay. Thank you for your recent support on my latest projects, it means so much to me. I’ve posted a new set of poems, which you can read here, entitled Holidaydream.

I hope that you like them, and that the rest of your day is delightful.

I wrote something concerning Kesha, because I am both a Kesha fan and a concerned human. Kesha’s right to freedom, as both a person and a creator seems lost in the entire thing, and it is so sad to see everyone’s interests being looked after with the exception of her. So many people are reduced to what they can offer, their human needs and emotions are ignored, and it is not only disgusting, it is dangerous. Kesha’s treatment further spreads the dangerous message that survivors of abuse don’t matter, and that nobody will take steps to protect them and others from further abuse. As upsetting as it is to say, there will be people in the world tonight reading about what is happening to Kesha, and feeling like they cannot report the abuse they may be suffering, because they will feel nobody will believe them, and that nobody will protect them.

Kesha deserves to feel safe and free, and I will be joining many other people in boycotting Sony until Kesha is treated with the respect she deserves, and safety is assured for all artists. This is the time to show the people who may be suffering in the same way Kesha was that people will protect them, people will stand up and support them, and that their feelings and safety do matter.

Please consider signing this petition to show solidarity with Kesha, during this difficult time.

Con amor,

J x
