"my name has always been lit up in the neon nostalgia of the glow of an empty fridge
searching late at night to pick over something I have already ingested
i have always had a heart like a bottomless folding takeout box
blooming with grease from forgotten meals"

Artist Spotlight: Lauren Dean


Today, we published a piece called “Madness”—a striking, image-rich short story that depicts the struggle that a diagnosis of bipolar disorder can create in a relationship. I was so intrigued by the writing that I wanted to talk to its author—and she graciously agreed to Skype with me, all the way from Alabama. We covered it all: Lauren’s own bipolar diagnosis, writing as therapy, bipolar disorder and relationships, and maintaining creativity throughout treatment for a mental illness. We look forward to hearing more from Lauren!

and aggression
so together we can question
the next fucking progression"

You Should Hear What I Have To Go Through

No one I know is well and everyone I know is dying.

Why can’t we all just accept
each person is unwell in their own way
and you can’t compare your unwellness to mine
like some kind of litmus test for suffering.

All suffering is suffering,
and should be acknowledged
in a binary state.

No one I know is well and everyone I know is dying.

Little Miss Can’t-Be-Wrong

I’m the kind of person who has a lot of contradictory loves in life. I like Prince, the Backstreet Boys, Parkway Drive, Nirvana, Stevie Nicks, and Niyaz. I like The Matrix and Jane Austen. I watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Charlie Rose. I eat hamburgers, vindaloo, prosciutto bread, and peach cobbler. I drink my coffee with soy milk and love orange Gatorade.
I am a writer who used to be an actress and now spends too much time watching WWE wrestling. Sometimes in life, you have to take your loves and mush them together. Let them interact. Let them fall in love with each other.
