There are hills and valleys
that you would like to explore,
dips in my skin where your
fingers cradle homes,
slipping under hems.
But my valleys will remain uninhabited,
my hills unoccupied,
for if my body is to be
your monopoly board,
then the world won’t ever be mine.
Keep your windows off my
hips and door frames off
you can breathe in my vagabond air
and kiss a path down me
all you want,
but this body was made for
I hope you all had an awesome New Years, whether you sat at home or partied it up
I, by no means, can promise that I’ll write more in 2014, but I will definitely be able to tell you that I will do a shit ton in the summer because like did you see all the poetry I did last summer goddamn
here’s to a great 2014!!!!!!!!! thanks for sticking out 2013 with me!!!!
my secret santa gift for smugrobotics!! College AU where Eames hosts a segment on the uni radio show and Arthur is drunk on his voice. also on ao3
“That’s it for tonight; thanks for listening. Don’t forget to follow my journey to self-discovery as documented in my blog—links are listed in the official website. Have a lovely night, all.” The voice is warm and low; Arthur can just imagine the speaker smiling, even if he’s never seen Eames, whoever he is. Eames just has a really nice voice with a really nice accent, no, Ariadne, he is not infatuated with this guy.
Arthur just happens to like Eames’ radio show, that’s all. The segment, part of the university’s radio program, starts at seven in the evening every night. Eames’ program is an advice show, but it often turns into something of a missed connections program—callers complaining about being too shy to talk to the guy from the library or the girl who dropped her books in the quad, if you’re listening to this, can you please call me at this number?
Eames’ voice aside, Arthur genuinely finds Eames to be pleasant. He’s kind and thoughtful and always gives great advice, making sure to give out hotline numbers for questions that he thinks are more than he should be handling. From the show, Arthur has only been able to gather that Eames is a sophomore whose least favorite class is physics.
Which, yeah. Arthur can definitely relate to that sentiment.
All Arthur wants is for Eames to slip up about his romantic life—single? Crushing? Committed? He’s been listening for months, but Eames really does his best to make sure his segments are never about him.
Which is why Arthur finds himself googling the university’s radio show, going on the site, and searching for Eames’ blog. The link takes him to Eames’ tumblr, and Arthur clicks Follow before even reading any of Eames’ posts.

by the way
I got into college yaaaaaaay
I’ve never been good
at letting houses
spring from my hands and
roots from my tongue—
I hope that when you
you can taste my wanderlust,
the heady flavor
that will cradle you
when you eventually find yourself
