D.M. Drake

One of my favorite classes in college was an online poetry class.  I had always loved to write stories, but had never before taken a swing at writing a poem.  This class required us to read a bit of poetry and to also write our own. I took the online version because I knew I wouldn't be able to stand in front of a class and read what I had written. I just kept picturing Julia Stiles from 10 Things I Hate About You, when I registered, and knew it would end in a similar fashion.

There's a possibility that you are already one of r.m. drake's one million instagram followers, but if you aren't.  Let me give you a small preview of his art that he creatively displays using social media. You can have any of his work sent to you via his Etsy account, I have my eye on a few that I'd like to order and frame.  Seeing his poems in my Instagram feed on a daily basis has inspired me to re-explore this old passion of mine, and buy a few poetry books. I might even get really crazy and try to write one of my own again.  We'll see about that though.  In the meantime, I'll leave you with these pretty words: 

Black Butterfly

He also has a new book that came out one month ago, check it out!
