TWO BOOK DEAL WITH FSG/MACMILLAN!!!

Guys I don't even have words right now.


I will come back here at some point and do a whole post about getting my agent, how the deal went down, what its been like, and all that. But for right now I just have to say I am so, so grateful. Grateful for every person whose supported me or taught me, online or irl, for my friends and family and everyone who's let me go after this and never told me my dream was unrealistic. I really almost can't believe that I get to do this thing.

You guys are awesome! And of course, keep writing!

My Pet Vampire Squid


My Pet Vampire Squid

Mom says no way
but I know she doesn’t mean it.
A Vampire Squid is a perfect pet.
See, I know all about them.
I know they’re
not quite squid
not quite octopus
their tentacle tips glow in the dark
like eyeballs
and when they’re afraid
they wrap themselves up in their
umbrella tentacles
like a long, dark cloak.
I know just how they feel
and how to take care of them too.
All you need is a large tank
in a dark room
and a little brother
with plenty of blood.

The Pineapple House

The Pineapple House

Clementine had a pineapple house
that grew pineapples on every wall.
They grew so fast and so many she said
"I'll never have time for them all."
She invited her family and friends, 
the whole town came to join her big pineapple bash.
They ate pineapple ice cream and upside-down cake
and ran the pineapple yard dash.
Folks had pineapple barbecue, pineapple juice,
and pineapple filet mignon.
They threw pineapple frisbys and pineappleoons
and played pineapple tag on the lawn.
When the sun had gone down and the party
was over, and all Clem's relations withdrawn,
she turned to go in to her pineapple bed
and found her whole house was all gone.

I Don't Know How To Act At Funerals

I Don’t Know How To Act At Funerals

because the person I want to ask about it
the person I want to talk to about it
the person I want to explain to me
why my stomach has vortexed my skull
isn’t here.

I Can’t Focus on Writing Thi...

I can’t focus on writing a
Why is there so much dust on my
Was that my stomach or a knock on the
My math worksheet should come first or maybe
When did teacher say to turn in our
Should I write mine on Cleopatra or
How many notifications do I have on
Oh look a video about
Could that be what this poem
Was it due tomorrow or the next
If I told my teacher I can’t focus what would she
Mom says it’s time for
We haven’t had pancakes for dinner since
Maybe if I just put one final
And they lived happily ever
