I Do NOT Condone Drinking As a Writing Tool…BUT…

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

  1. Some beautiful words here, Jessica… “I feel your kisses still on my lips, Silk and satin, honey-drips, And your sweet words that fell like rain…” Very nice. All of it – the first lines grabbed me. Nothing like a late night poetry attack, right?

    And the celebratory wine is always important. I think Hemmingway said,”write drunk, edit sober.” Sometimes we need the relaxation, the “letting go” that loosensthe words in our brains. It works for dancing feet, too. The poem is beautiful and those kisses make me want to lick my lips.
