And I will use these words for kindling.

Hi, I'm Bailey. I like the Mountain Goats and eating food and reading beautifully strung together words.

"I am not the sea. I am a sunken ship that has drowned in everyone who touched me."

And she is the reader
who browses the shelf
and looks for new worlds
but finds herself.

i’m not sure anyone knows how embarrassingly stone cold serious i am when i say “the mountain goats made me a better person” but it’s real and it’s out there

"But women get unfair advantages in custody battles"


FALSE. Fathers who ask for sole custody are far more likely to get it. It’s just that they don’t ask, mostly women do. Men win custody over women even if they are ostensibly unfit. More and more, judges and parents rule in favor of 50/50 custody. In fact, in the past ten years, the men’s rights movement has been devastating to women seeking custody in court and women are awarded sole custody about half as many times as men.  

So find a new fucking myth. 

And I stood before the mirror then
ike I was waiting for a phone call
Squinting like a lost traveler in a thick fog
But nothing clear came into view 
Except for you
Just off in the distant horizon
Something hidden in your hand

I’m gonna break. Something.”

I am figuring out which parts of my personality are mine 
and which ones I created to please you.

Pictured: me holding the hardback US edition of my novel, Wolf in White Van, on the day I got it from Farrar, Strauss & Giroux: today, Thursday, August 21, 2014. Not to get all emotional with you but the first real ambition I ever had was to be an author. As a child I dreamt of seeing my name on book jackets. Now I am covering up most of that name with my hand, but yet refuse to re-take the picture, because I feel my deep-game goth powers are so strongly in evidence here that it must be shared as-is to give hope to both the revealed & the crypto-goths. 

Huge, huge thanks to all who brought me to this day - teachers, friends, all of you who’ve listened to my songs or read stuff I’ve written and connected with what you found there, who believed in me - may I always be worthy of your support!

Finally, because people will ask so why not get it out of the way up front: the lyric at the piano behind me is “Beyond the Mysterious Beyond” from The Land Before Time 7: The Stone of Cold Fire, a song which I can totally sing the hell out of, and you don’t have to take it from me, you can ask my son, who insists that I sing it at least eight times a day, which I do cheerfully and I’d do a ninth time, too, if he wanted, because, as I am always asking in my better moments, why the hell not. 


thought about you a little - the mountain goats

the sun came out this morning I was wide awake and I made way down to the kitchen and i cut myself a piece of my birthday cake.
raspberry filling in the middle.
and i thought about you a little.


In the spirit of intl women’s day

have you seen this dog


look at him

‪#‎whyWEneedfeminism‬, no. 1,467:

"Christy Mack shouldn’t have fooled with a MMA fighter named ‘War Machine’—what did she expect to happen?"

On one side, we’re told—fear men that fit certain stereotypes, and if you don’t fear them, any damage you incur is your fault.
On the other side, when a woman *does* take this fear to heart, she is greeted with “Not All Men” and labeled an angry, man-hating bitch.
So which is it? Trust the man, and get flamed for stupidity, or fear the man, and get blamed for bigotry?
Cultural narratives of gender weave a labyrinthine minefield of confusion that none of us traverse without harm.
