Not everything you see is directed at you personally

curious about the details of the cult I was in? and what exactly the poems in Jovian Flesh & Fauna trying to describe, I tell the gritty real stories without the metaphors in the author commentary being published on Patreon. What IS a Sleen? It's on patreon.com/shelraphen

I just recently on Patreon posted a poem about a bunch of queers doing a nude ritual in a lake under the New Moon, and a poem about class disparity fucking with our relationships. On the 15th I'll be posting a poem about your co-worker being replaced by an anthropomorphic insect

I just wrote a poem about recovery from unhealthy behaviors using a Sonic the Hedgehog metaphor and a poem about the embodiment of Hedonism trying to seduce you and fuck you instead of thinking about the state of the world.

(just got told my car needs brake service and it'll cost nearly a month of rent, and my job didn't give me any hours for a few weeks because we were closed, so yeah time to shill for my fuckin Patreon MaPa needs that gig economy money)

The only way to get hard copies of my chapbooks right now is through pledging to my Patreon. You get the chapbook mailed to you and access to nearly a whole chapbook's worth of exclusive content on Patreon; including poems about alienation from (E)stranged Earth, my next chapbook

you like my poetry? you can read a ton of it on Patreon at patreon.com/shelraphen for as little as $5/month. All poems are recorded too. There's 2 new exclusive poems a month + new recorded of a poem with author commentary from Jovian Flesh & Fauna. $10 gets you a chapbook!

The lawyer who, pro bono, got me out of jail and got my charges commuted, who has stood up to ICE and DHS numerous times, organized antizionist jewsh community spaces, and so much more; just been diagnosed with breast cancer and can't afford treatment.

It would mean so much to me if you donated to her GoFundMe and spread this around.

New poem on Patreon: patreon.com/posts/29436606

This poem is about imagining a world in the far off future when all the plastic has decomposed and we have to teach children how tf that happened.

We hit another milestone on Patreon!! Holy shit!! That means even more perks for patrons!! Once I get over this chest cold I'll start recording an audiobook of Jovian Flesh & Fauna and one recorded poem from that a month will be posted to Patreon!

I'm really into this essay a comrade wrote about abolishing the family and gender simultaneously by expanding family and gender more and more until we are living under communism and the notions of family and gender become meaningless
