My name is Chloe. I live in Louisville, Kentucky, which you probably know as the home of the Derby or Hunter S. Thompson. If you didn’t, now you do.

I’m a Capricorn. If you don’t believe in astrology, I was born on January 1st. If you don’t believe in birthdays, I’m 21 years old. If you believe that age is just a number, then we can’t be friends.

I recently graduated with a B.A. in English from Berea College, which was a deeply formative period of my life where I discovered incredible things about myself, awful things about the world, and okay things about other people. It was very important and I never want to do it again.

I’ve been writing poetry seriously, though not necessarily well, since my senior year of high school. I take a symbolist/imagist approach to the stuff, and I want to concentrate more on form. People tell me I do poetry well. I don’t believe them, because believing them means I’m satisfied, which means I’m done with poetry.

I like Radiohead, judging people by their clothes, collecting handsome paperbacks, and hot beverages. I dislike hedonism, corruption, 99% of slam poetry, and expensive health food stores.
