Because a vote for me is a vote for humanity (ok not really but please vote)

Torrid Literature published my poem, We is, this summer and is now having a contest for their literary hall of fame. If you would be so kind to vote for me, that would be awesome. I’m on page three, Rachael Stanford, We is. You can vote

A vote for me, is well, a vote for me. :)

A vote for me, is well, a vote for me. 🙂

We is by Rachael Stanford

We
Is

Laughing at linguists who
could never comprehend

though the space between our
fingertips

is wider than the Grand Canyon
the barren plains punctuating
I forge, unashamedly naked
The bitter November winds
lick my flesh

We is

Enveloped in blurred realities
Of your memories, warmed by the linger
Touch of your flesh, a permanent tattoo

I run, unwavering by demons of doubt
A happy toddler, each step in you

A cosmos
We.

Thanks again for the vote, I’m happy to return the favor!

We did it!

Just a quick note guyscolbert_wedidit, we did it!

Today Independent Playwrights announced their winners, and I (looks around like who me?) was named the winner of the Dear Reader category!

Eek! I am beyond thrilled and want to take a second to all of my readers and followers who voted for me.  Your guys’ support means the world to me. 🙂

Anyway, there will be more updates to follow (I’m sure you guys will get sick of it so I’ll try to refrain from going overboard) so stay tune on information about the anthology I will be featured in.

*Whew* now that its all over I can devote myself to writing a novel with the rest of the month……..

…..I am insane.
