  1. This is just one person’s opinion and a little tongue-in-cheek, but there’s something oddly perfect about your poem. Simple yet complex. Descriptive (even erotic) but not overly (nor overtly) so. I’m don’t know every style; did you use one that’s floating out there, or is it purely your own? Also, may I reblog your post? (I must love it so much to wanna start doing this!)

    1. Jonathan, thank you for your words. I would be honored if you rebloged my work.
      In truth, I write free verse. An idea comes to me and I let it flow, then I go back to edit so it reads like music.
      I won’t claim the style as my own. I am influenced by Rupi Kaur’s work. I’ve also been listening to a lot of Maggie Rodgers lately so I imagine her lyrics have been impacting my writing.
      I don’t know how to describe my style, or if there is a word that describes it. If anyone knows of it please comment. Thanks again for writing to me.

      1. You’re welcome, Marisa, and it’s my pleasure to share what you’re cookin’ up. I feel like an idiot for not knowing our successful contemporary, Rupi Kaur! I’m gonna have to buy her book. The only Milk and Honey I’ve known until now is a song by Anderson .Paak. And talking about songs, I haven’t kept up with Maggie Rogers since I saw the interview she did with Pharell for “Alaska.” I’ll have to give her album a thorough listen too. As for editing free verse to be musical, I guess I try do the same subconsciously, at least from what I’ve been told about certain free verses I wrote. Anyway, I’ll have the reblog up shortly. Cheers!
