#newyork is such a butt-fuck at times, but alas an awesome loft in bushwick to call my owwwwwn. with fellow artists in an old knitting factory. the roof never ends- everyone up there has a dog for me to spoil, & the #manhattan skyline is crazytown. you think you can take me down #nyc?! I’m melissa goddamn fiction.

#breakfast…! #clam pizza with white sauce & a poached #egg. @through_a_lens_darkly is a genius.

I love the neon blood of the metropolis spilling into the streets, grand architecture like dark matter castles, this creature town built for bats, making the floorboards shake, sweating, dancing - but damn, our supercharged welcome back to #nyc after a serene cabin getaway is a bitter lemon burning in my mouth. can a quarter of my year be mountain air? earth under my nails? hours of reading & tea-drinking in a hammock. then a quarter out to sea, & a half-year in the big city—- or perhaps a quarter of that for adventures in other lands. #maine (at Vinalhaven, Maine)

inspired by the decadent prose & diaries of anais nin — & the perverted stories I crafted as a teenager — I’ve started writing magic realism literotica. cooking up the perfect pen name & then it’s sexytime, boys & girls.
