What I Wish I Knew After My MFA Ended

What I Wish I Knew After My MFA Ended.


Kind of getting a jump start on most of these anyway. Yay to switching to Low-Res to go live on a farm and work on what I want to work on instead of what I have to for a grade!


To all of the Brandon’s out there (a multi-haiku)

You are the one who
let me go—broke your promises
couldn’t be a man.

Don’t expect me to
open my arms to you
after all the silence.



I know haikus are generally nature poems, but I’m kind of in a minimalist/haiku state of mind lately, and it’s April–Poetry month. Actually, it almost seems fitting that I write these here, as a reflection or contrast to last years love-related poems.


How things change, or rather, how they don’t.
