Lately I have been feeling more private about my work and constrained by the public access to my blog. I would like to write more personally, more dirty, more raw. My only option to do this in a way that felt good as an artist and as a person who considers writing my career was to charge for a subscription.

If you are still reading and interested in reading the meatier stuff, please consider becoming a subscriber to my blog. You can paypal alysia dot angel at gmail dot com  with a one time ever fee of $50. It gets you a personal to you password and lifetime access to my online work. I strongly encourage people to contact me if that amount feels like a hardship. I am always looking for trade from folks with strong editing skills to finesse my pieces.

Love.

from the oak tree

21 May

birds fly up

scatter themselves into

artful chaos

i watch them dive in eerie

unison

black oily

wings

polished coal

eyes

filling me up with

with great

gentleness

i want to

tell you the story

of each bird

names matched with

greatest triumph

all of the places

they have visited

which ones

broke their

heart

birds fly up

hurling insults

at the plastic domed

heads of their

home wreckers

enemies making

falling branches

appear

like graceful

feathers

all around the

trunk base

in front of

perfect little

stacked boxes

where the good people live

the wind blowing

a plastic bag

with a red rose on it

until it’s me out there

blown by the wind

away from

admiring

silence

from the hollow

19 May

well i am

shooting

arrows again

from the backyard

attempting to

coax the details

yesterday’s

crime

out of the bee hive

who isn’t

snitching

every cell of the hive

silent

you are on

your porch

somewhere

there

building buildings

taking care

there is an ocean

full of everything

a heart can hold

but

before the sun

rises

it looks like

i have plans to

tussle

with stinging

darkness
