STRAIGHT FROM MY TILT-A-WORLD (legal copyright Melissa A Howells 6/13/2018 10:01am PST time/date stamped)

Home, Ghuey, Sweet Home

All Beings Considered

My Cat Lived

It Is The Rain



I Talk To A Machine In My Darkness

I Long For Stars

This Is It

Its Their Problem

If This Is Any Art For Which You Care

Someone Send Out A Search Party

the life and times of Medusa

Max on the max

Your Next New Dying Black Swan

So You Do (May 10, 2010 written for June 1987)

Not For The Bloom of Tears Cultivated These Last 100 Years

Make (of) Me A Snow Angel

Someone Burned The Trees

Crowded Out

Sometimes Love Comes With Electricity

I Feel Fine(r)

Better To Bend Than Be Broken (CHANGE)

A Promise Is

Something More...

Les Animaux

Ghost Fox

A Little Bad Romance

I See A World

Where None Should Grow

Live And Let Live

I'm An Old Bad Dog Barking At The Rain

I wonder......

Now Is My Season


once I turned my back on you
wouldn't take a look at you
especially not in the mirror
how I
denied my hurt
buried my pain
accepted unacceptable words
that others would spray

I've wanted to let you know
I've turned around now
I see your reflection

I'm making different choices
I've forgiven myself
for all my self-neglect
you're going to start living
in a very different way

how soothing it is to sit quietly
not even to speak
listen to the wind and rain
breathe in the silence
knowing I'm still here

healing might have been mine
all of this time
but now I'll claim it

see me
and how I'm a purple crocus
rising from the warming earth
now
is my season.
