Ultracrepidarian: noting or pertaining to a person who criticizes, judges, or gives advice outside the area of his or her expertise

My head has grown

three times the size it should

I live for the gentle

thud against my skull

I will always read all I can

Mental illness of an intellectual:

The more I learn the more I feel


Grand pride of the blood-wrenched soul

Why should I always need

to be the smartest person

in any given room?

Corrections, additions, clarification

drugs for the mind, I’m hooked

I am the queen of pretend knowledge

zirconia eyes and a smile

my head has grown

three times the size it should

gold crown digging into the gentle

thud against my skull

She is an aspiring novelist, poet and screenwriter hoping to obtain a degree in creative writing and literature. Her parents, one might be surprised to hear, are rather supportive of her chosen field, perhaps because they have yet to lose hope that she will eventually earn enough money to survive on her own, and her friends are simply blind optimists. June Rossaert is, essentially, a hopeless nerd with a passion for the written word which she desperately hopes to transfer through her works.
