I wonder if you think of me

if you see my face at all

I wonder if I’m on your thoughts

a flash of color at night

I wonder if you hear my name, do you think of my laugh?

I wonder if you’ll miss me soon

if you’ll wonder where I am

I want to know if I’m unjust

if I picked up and moved too fast

I’d ask you what you thought of me

but I don’t think you’d even recall

my feathers on your window

my perch right on your bed

I don’t think you’d even bother to see my jesses still sitting by your door

I wanted you to take me out

Not for you to leave me out.

Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive

Hey y'all,

I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.

Thank you,
Scott Ploof
Big Easy Magazine
