I'm only here for poetry and cat gifs.
Joy Young - “Unbuttoning My Boy Shirt” (NPS 2014)
"I fail terribly as a lesbian. I haven’t even seen The L Word. The only Tegan and Sara CD I own was a gift from a straight guy."
Performing during prelims at the 2014 National Poetry Slam.
Joy Young - “The Dress Poem”
"It feels like staring at the sun, hard; so when I look away it stays, printed in my mind, making other images melt."
Performing at the 2013 National Poetry Slam in Cambridge, MA.
Reposting my Button Poems in hopes that people find and follow me since somehow my Tumblr was erased and I’m starting over. Please follow me again! I’m operating under the hopes of “If I (re)build it, they will come (again)”!
Joy’s Tumblr was deleted somehow! If you think you’d enjoy following a genuine CIRCUS POET they’re just what you’re looking for. If you we’re following them before, you might not be now. Try again!
Not sure what happened, but my Tumblr was deleted and so I must start again. Please repost/signal boost this if you stumble across me because I have lost all my followers and am sad to feel like I was disconnected from this huge community that I adore being a part of.

One day it just gets better. There’s no explanation or reason why. You just wake up and you’re not angry anymore.
So patient. So good.
all im interested in right now is laying in bed and kissing a lot
Before I am your daughter, your sister, your aunt, niece, or cousin, I am my own person, and I will not set fire to myself to keep you warm.
