Hello, all. Lovely place you got here. I'm Matt Rust, and I quite fancy myself an actor/musician/writer. Who'd'uv thunk it? Art in general is the lens I tend to see through, and while I don't get paid very much in any of the aforementioned endeavors, I keep pushin' on. I tend to write poetry and little bits/vignettes, mostly with strong social/political commentary. I don't lean too heavy on metaphor and like to keep things concise, but I don't completely abandon imagery or allusions or allegory or other fun literary tools. I sometimes get a bit wordy and could cut a good six or seven words per sentence out, so let me know when omissions are available. And if I'm leaning on adjectives too much and could use a few more verbs, certainly bring that to my attention. Shine on, you crazy diamonds.
