Favorite Quote:
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars.


Thumbprint bruises pressed under his eyes.
Words make their way up his throat,
Stifling little white lies.
Cracked lips frame pictures of happy smiles,
Hung in bedrooms and hallways
And shown to family and friends.
Shaky hands smooth calluses down like the corners of wrinkled sheets.
Blue veins crisscross like rivers under cloud-colored skin, with bones like mountains rising up under his wrists and hips.
