Biography of Taylor Petty
Hey, I'm Taylor. Poetry keeps me honest. If it weren't for the art, I would be the most mendacious person in Texas, and the thought of that does not appease me. Everything that I write is heart-felt, so if you have any comments, in good taste or not, give me a holler. I hope that my writing inspires you to be honest with me. Thank you.

I’ve been trying to figure out ways to tell you. I think I’m going to just come out and say it. It pissed me off when I helped you and you didn’t even say thank you. That’s all I needed was a f-ing thank you.
