Let It Be Known That

Let it be known that

I squished the spider
in the bathtub
with my shampoo bottle.

Forgive me; the window
was open and I could
have set it free,

but I did not think.
I only saw its smug,
pipe cleaner legs

and felt it crunch.

Music Mondays: Part VIII

Happy Leap Day!

I am quite busy this week, so I only have two writing playlist suggestions.


This particular mix was inspired by a W.B. Yeats poem, “He Wishes For The Cloths of Heaven.”

HAD I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Drawing from great classic composers like Edward Elgar and Sergei Prokofiev and modern musicians like James Galway and John Williams, this is the perfect mix for dreaming up extraordinary worlds.


For every good dream there is a nightmare, and this next mix plays to your inner demons. Dark, brooding, and at times jarring, writing tales of infernal odds and corrupted characters will only feel natural when listening to this playlist.


Happy writing! 🙂
