S/o to my squad for reaching their $1,000 funding goal on Go Fund Me. The page will be up throughout the month so donations are still being accepted. The team’s showcase will be July 29th at Le Bon Temps. Congrats #eclectictruth2014 www.gofundme.com/EclecticTruth2014

I’m sure it’s darker in my head
than it actually is outside
someone forgot to pay
my bones’ electricity bill
I’m sure it was me
I need to come out of this black space
lift this black face to the sun
let the light pay off this debt of depression
walk like I know
that all is well

I got a nice amount of poems published in June’s edition of “Gris Gris”, Nicholls State University’s online literary journal. Google it to see what’s good! #publishing #poems #GrisGris #LitJournals
