Last Few Days to Order

This weekend marks THE FINAL MOST IMPORTANT WEEKEND for Pacific Prescription: Leukemia Cyclone! If you haven't ordered it yet, please do so this weekend! 🧡All I aim to do is break 100 in sales with each book, and I am not there yet! 📚This sailing collection is so close to my heart, and I would love if it would be close to yours too. ❤️⛵️ Support leukemia awareness, support adventure, support survival, and support poetry! 🌎 What would life be without taking time to look at and read art that examines humanity? See an example poem below:


~after reading Transparencies by Meg Bateman

there’s a silence in the air

as I take in the group of poems—

the words that linger—

jaws, tentacles, licks, jowls

—and I am swallowed

into a scottish life—

braken, heather, thistle, clover

—have the flowers grown over me

here, land bound, a cure in my blood

have I lost myself in the evergreen

of dunes, the shore of the big pond

jaw raised, can I sing my way out

will the ocean breath me in

—make me interesting again

me—a mother wolf, four cubs

dragged about in my sharp teeth

rolled around by my rough paws

there are no bagpipes on the wind

here—no heather, no thistle

only store-bought blackberries

dè mise dhutsa—what am I to you—

sister, savior, sailor—seasickness,

anxiety turns my stomach—washed up

on the shore, no movement, waves

lap, claw, pull on my waters

the wind moves the trees

—like the soft bark-colored fur

of a squirrel—I’m unseen

scurrying with restlessness

the acorn drops—Fall arrives

am I to sink in the sand with worms

or find my blood and bones in deep sea
