To Write Love On Their Arms

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

      I always write in Microsoft Word and for this all I did was just tab over where it looked good to me. Then, in WordPress draft, there’s a drop-down list that is normally on Paragraph. If you click it and go to the bottom there’s a “Preformatted” option. I clicked that and then copy/pasted from Word to WordPress. It did the rest. There was a little tweaking I had to do but the end result is pretty much the same so I left it.
      And thank you!

  3. Love the line “lost in misinterpretation”. So many mis-steps… (sigh)
