friendly and hilarious with a dark underbelly? i like. though i'm also hella judging you, ms. whole foods and wine haha. my name is jd. i'm a spunky, chubby, dark-skinned asian girl who hops onto craigslist because, from time to time, i like my adventures take a sexual and/or literary twist. just to give you an idea of what kind of person i am: tonight i wrote a poem about how much i love the dark. not like, satanic dark? more like, 2-4am dark. the kinds of things that happen at that time. prior to that, my friend and i were texting back and forth about various things, and we started talking about memory; we're both bad with numbers but great with words. she listed three of her favorite poems. in case you are curious, one of them is lady of shalott and the other is earth tremors felt in missouri:
"The earth, with others on it, turns in its course
as we turn toward each other, less than ourselves, gross,
mindless, more than we were. Pebbles, we swell
to planets, nearing the universal roll,
in our conceit even comprehending the sun,
whose bright ordeal leaves cool men woebegone."
this friend with such awesome taste in poetry and i met online in 2006 and we've hit it off. it was her 30th birthday this past sunday. anyway, so for whatever reason the stanza above made me really feel like writing. disclaimer: i am not a writer. after i wrote a bunch of freeverse vomit, i went back to work, finished work, walked downstairs to the lobby and chopped it up with my favorite security guard, works graveyard shift. he told me about how he used to work at the DownLow and saw justin bieber before he was famous. when he saw bieber's promo poster a couple of months before the performance he thought bieber was a hot lesbian lmao. when bieber showed up on stage with ludacris he felt like, instant regret. he also told me how he used to work some of the strip clubs on broadway. he is 86'd from any deja vu establishment in sf. like if they swipe his card it literally is like, ERT nope. we lol'd some more and then i drove home listening to a maroon 5 cd. i don't even like maroon 5 that much but it's actually really good music. now i'm here at home.
i just wrote this long email to you not knowing whether you will reply or not. contrary to how long, rambly, and insane this email seems i am actually a high functioning individual in society who loves watching cat videos and gambling in reno. i don't know who you are but i liked the shape of your email/words. classy, confident, and my age.
