Welcome to the first ever PoeticalCondition Monthly Member Feature!

Our first Member of the Month is:
photosynthetichuman :iconphotosynthetichuman:
"Name’s Izzy, easy to pronounce. An aspiring screenwriter who partakes in poetry every once in a while trying to learn how to write by writing. Fond of old movies and staring out to sea. Currently residing at the end of world, also known as Chile."

Congratulations on the nomination, Izzy!

3 of their favorite works are:
glowafteronce there was a girl
who would eat the sun
on a frozen beach
i'd watch carefully
never told me why
cause i never asked
sunrise and sunset
she would stare and stare
grow she would nourished
by cosmic cycles
she then glanced at me
her secret smile
when she grew too much
and flew into space
one with the fire
at home, burning core
leaving me behind
a small speck of sand
covered by silent snow
drowned by the still sea
on a clod of dirt
wandering the void
staring, staring at the stars
scapecityhow burghal,
to be citified
a civic civil
in the
interurban
intraurban
behold
megalopolitan man
drowning
in his municipal
upbreakunbelieving big lemonade eyes
salt stream tainting your choco latte
my facade rolling in fumes
fiddling pieces of nickel and copper
walking away, cold in a winter coat
there is no last goodbye kiss for us
only soft whimpers and pleas
i lost in the dull people noise
still i tell others what i did to you
was comfortably mutual and agreed upon


3 of our favorite works written by them are:
upsmokewhen thinking of you
i like a smoke or six
drive a poisonstick
deep into my lungs
rot might reach my brain
erase our wheezing laughs
nights of nicotine haze
smog mixing with sweat
you're fumes of a cig
wispy, wonderful whirls
absorbed into corners
never to be seen again
smelling of burnt skin
i'm pulled from nostalgia
and light another match
portraitselfborn of thunderclaps and rocket-smashes
clattering, cracking for air in black smoke
mechanical gears frozen mid-routine
ridiculed the ghost who lost his tombstone
hankering for a home that never was
offbeat and lost in a land of oddballs
searching for holes in gates guarding the door
singing strange songs for fabricated friends
fail and fall, disenchant the floor people
stranded roadkill in turnpike rush hour
with twisted fates and destiny condemned
easy fun playing the cop on cocaine
each passing day thinking it's happier
never noticing how more empty fills
run for judgments, opinions, decisions
sold them all for free, those futile votes
flip between bananas and nuts litter
reason, sense, and wit worn away clawing
wish for a tragedys hopeful ending
pondering storming off stage with broke legs
deterred by lucky love and true blue friends
rolled up snake eyes with a knife in the back
reach shadows of bursting supernovas
evaporate atom-sized darkness drop

photosynthetichuman was nominated by MariposaLuna.
They said, "I found their works to be quite intense, a masculine vulnerability that I quite like."

Check them out!

Members of the Month are officially open to nominations by anyone!
Please feel free to nominate your friends, or anyone you think deserves special recognition.
Members can only be featured once, and you cannot nominate yourself.
The final decision will be made by me, your founder. Or one of the Admins in the rare case of my absence.
So get nominating!


Happy writing,
- Mo :heart:

P.S. I am excited to announce that in the coming weeks we will be hosting our very first contest! We have some really great prizes to offer, so get excited! Keep an eye out for the Journal with all the information you will need. And tell your friends! We look forward to your participation. =D

I thank you kindly for this privilege. I'm humbled and honored being the first, quite surprised by the nomination and how spot-on it is in describing what I do. Many thanks to the group, ~MariposaLuna, and *RisetoBe, along with all the lovely people who came by my profile for a look.

I should also mention I'm overly content with how the poems were ordered, to quote Goldilocks, "just right".
