Your Friendly Neighborhood Mad Doctor!


Anonymity is my cloak by necessity, not choice
Left to my means I’ve quite a loud voice
Things are as they are, to avoid any ire
I’ll speak to you all through Calliope’s Lyre
Cabbages and kings, of truths and of lies
Of shadows, and of the smoke in your eyes
Naught left unspoken and no stone unturned
Long up till dawn have our candles burned
All that gained, lost, all that was forsaken
Come sit down, lets talk of that road not taken.


Hey everyone! 🙂

I’d love to put up a randomized (much cooler) intro but the asymmetry will keep me twitching all day.

Obviously my name’s not Cookie, but you can call me Calliope, that’ll work just fine.  I’m in my early twenties and if Calliope and Asclepius ever had a love child, that would be me (that’s probably blasphemous in some way, but writers are supposed to all controversial, I think?).  I like writing poetry, which makes sense because I talk pretty much nonstop and writing is an extension of being a smartypants, just in rhyme. I was in medschool when I started this, but the blog has helped me sail steady through the years, and I’m a doctor now. Doesn’t leave as much time for writing and posting, but hey, how could I survive if I didn’t. ( I have a rare condition called Brevity-Associated Hypoxia. I go BAH! a lot and have to write, otherwise I get all blue, like the cookie monster, and can’t breathe).

I’m also obsessed with animals, wild and domestic. A small level rescue service (but please don’t get me more kittens or puppies.  My mom will kick me out!!). My blog posts are rather erratically spaced, sorry about that. I love comments, and I love commenting, so poke me if you want me to see something you wrote- I’ll always check it out.


 (See? I wanna be this guy!)

Like I said, I like writing poetry, which was the basic purpose of starting this blog. I hope to be published some day, when I have a semblance of a social life again. If you can offer me a book deal though, let me know. I can be outside your door as soon as yesterday. Even if that doesn’t happen, I’ll keep writing here. I’ve had to find the strength to make public a lot of what happens behind closed doors in my life, in pockets of our communities that no one looks closely at. Abuse, self harm, travel, people, deconstructing the fabric of society- it all happens here. I think I would have gone quite mad if I hadn’t found this outlet. Which is depressing- but I don’t think so.  I think it’s healing. 🙂

I’m a voracious reader, and I listen to a lot of rock and metal. Occasionally I cook, and then go hunting for guinea pigs friends to share it with. And I love to hear from you guys, so please do comment! 🙂

Erm.. that’s all I can think of about me.. So! Thanks for stopping by! Hope you decide to come back soon- or stay! I have cookies…. *beckons*


Everything here is a celebration.

Come, follow me. I’ll lead you astray.

  1. Your poetry is beautiful and I like the way you match the images to the words. And your cat w/ glasses is brilliant.

    • Thank you Alice. 🙂 I’ve only recently started putting images up with poems. It’s always a search to find just the right picture. And lol, the cat looked so much like my Athena, that I couldn’t resist! 🙂
