My awesome parents sent me a care package with a bunch of goodies in it to help me get through finals. There were snacks and toys and today, I’ve just discovered the fruit that was on the bottom of it.
Officially announcing my BEAST of a poet series! It started on Twitter with Malcolm London, then Jaws on Tumblr. It will be a showcase of great poets/spoken word artists. I will try to be consistent with it so maybe once or twice a week. I’ll probably make a page for it and I’ll come up with some clever tag. Feel free to submit poets! Happy Sunday everyone!
One more exam on Monday then I’m done.
Shout out to this BEAST of a poet - Jaws. He’s known to the Tumblr world as Poetry and Fingertips. Go follow him! I had missed some of his pieces so I was reading through his blog and found this lovely piece. His energy is incredible and the poem is so good!

HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE
Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!!
NOW HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE…
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.
However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously.
A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.
A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.
Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating.
The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can perhaps buy precious time to get themselves to a phone and dial 911.
