Isn’t she lovely #NaPoWriMo (day 18)

Spending the day with a gem >>>>

I am a naive fan of basketball. I have little knowledge and am easily influenced by the pundits. Basketball however I think is one of the most enjoyable sports to watch simply because it’s a show of skill and athleticism that is easy to appreciate. However I’m trying to expose myself to more full matches, which means compromising on early sleep. I haven’t watched a playoff game in its entirety yet, so we’ll see if that happens tonight, as my adopted Bulls take on the Celtics.

Also is anyone watching 13 reasons why? I haven’t but I keep hearing about it, and it’s starting to have the quiet traction that got me watching Stranger Things which I absolutely loved. Is 13 reasons why worth the watch, should I jump on or is it mere hype? Talk to me, let me know I’m not alone, comment or @ me on twirra.

Also Happy Birthday, Lulu. May your future be sweat like succulent mangoes.

Rah, I’m four paragraphs deep and I haven’t mentioned the fire poet recommendation for today. It’s Remi Graves. You know you’re lit when the title of an anthology comes from a line in your work. Step forward Remi (@RemiGraves). She’s such a talented poet, again that I had the privilege of doing Barbican Young Poets with. She’s cold and will be featuring at the Loop on the 11th May, I advise that you go and witness her greaziness in the flesh. Read her anthology piece here (PDF page 11/27).

If you closed your eyes

I like to think I’d do something holy, that I’d be noble,
but if God closed his eyes to me,
if the world stopped watching just for a day,
what other companion would I have but Satan?

I like to think I’d do something holy,
but I wouldn’t, I’d spend the day with the devil.

  1. Sorry to be grammar police but you said sweat instead of sweet? Unless you really meant sweat and you want my life to sweat like mangoes; I’m totally cool with that.

    Also, that poem was…..deep? triggering? head spinning? all of the above & more tbh. but I liked it.


    1. P.S 13 Reasons Why, yes, watch it. It’s pretty harrowing/uncomfortable to watch at some points but it sheds light on some really important topics.
