a few weeks ago my favorite person asked me a question to which i said OBV & my plan was to quote international player’s anthem here but in fact that song is not about marriage in the way the music video once led me to believe. anyway alhamdulillah wow wow wow

i’ve started sending out a monthly newsletter (yesterday was issue 2!) as a way to hold myself accountable to a different sort of writing that doesn’t come from my poetry brain. so far the loose form is that i’ll be talking clothes, books, list any upcoming readings, a tiny playlist and a prompt. tinyletter.com/mafiasafia to subscribe ✨
