The poems I write aren't really poems. They're more like fairytales in poetic format, and they don't necessarily end with happily ever after. They are original though. The idea of rewriting the same old stories is getting a little cliche, in my opinion. However, I would definitely like to see Disney make a movie out of Oscar Wilde's original tales. My work is heavily influenced by him as well as Angela Carter and Francesca Lia Block. I would apprciate any criticism one could hope to offer. That being said, I hope you enjoy.
P.S. If you ever end up reading my essay please note that I am not a mean or judgemental person by nature. I just have the tendency to act upon my rabidly feminist ideals.
