Ayooo! Sorry you haven’t heard from us in a hot second. PTK has had A LOT cooking i.e. …
houses flooding, getting on exclusive influencer lists, ducks taking over our terraces, making plans with the next PTK squatter, and OF COURSE, preparing for the launch of our first editorial issue 🌸 🌸 🌸 🌸 🌸 HOT PEOPLE HAVE A SPRING AWAKENING 🌸 🌸 🌸 🌸 🌸 dropping this Saturday, April 29th!!
Tell all your friends! It’s going to feature the spring-iest and mood-iest poetry, art, and music selected from our open call. WE CAN’T WAIT.
As Larissa is dipping her ear into the ocean for the first time, and I am avoiding the King’s Day shenanigans in Amsterdam (on my terrace, with the aforementioned ducks), here’s a piece to tide you over until Saturday.
if I’m being honest
if I’m being honest, the invisible hand is just your mom who did all the laundry and made sure the bills were paid if I’m being honest, the collective dream logic never lies if I’m being honest, I can only come at 11:11 if I’m being honest, retiring from the role of game master sounds like a relief if I’m being honest, I skipped out on the bill at dinner the other night because nobody would pay attention to me if I’m being honest, I wrote all this on the ferry while listening to Getaway Car by Taylor Swift if I’m being honest, I was having coffee & Kafka at Cafe Mocha exactly 13 years ago today if I’m being honest, I just want a tired King if I’m being honest, ducks are the biggest opportunists if I’m being honest, I don’t ship the monarchy if I’m being honest, burnout is just when your body remembers the resistance that had always been there if I’m being honest, I probably have a mood disorder if I’m being honest, my version of hairpin dropping is posting a power washing video to Silk Chiffon on my instagram stories if I’m being honest, they had the most romantic hands if I’m being honest, I need to stop projecting my expectations on to the weather if I'm being honest, my love language is body doubling if I’m being honest, I won’t know until I try if I’m being honest, I flip off that new building every time I'm on my way to the exhibition if I’m being honest, art is just a conduit for making friends if I’m being honest, I’m holding the grief in my back again if I'm being honest, sue me
And that’s a wrap! We’re sooo excited to share everything we have prepared for you in the next few months!! Thank you for supporting us in our master plan towards becoming the first ever poetry millionaires (because we cannot girl boss any longer and billionaires are unethical). ✌️
I can't wait to see what's coming. Poetry millionaires...yes please!!!
Also if I'm being honest.....this was an amazing poem.
Amazing. If I'm being honest, this is fun reading.
Here's to the next and first poetry millionaires.
