    The bleak morning of Sunday, October 4th, 2010, found me huddled against my mother's car, the weather far too cold for my sweatshirt and jeans ensemble. A coffee cup, too small to make a dent in my sleep debt, was clutched in my fingers. I was examining the reflection of my criminally bright t-...

    Hey, mama Your acumen in my life is great, really But wouldn't it just be lovely if you would back off every once in a while? I'm actually kind of big now- taller than you- And when when you trumpet you dust-coated opinions, well, the notes sound a little flat to me. Pretty, but ...

    I have a headache. I think it's the sleep- I am drunk with it, hungover on the little marbles of rest that weigh down my intellect. I cannot win; My marbles are too many, they weigh a ton. My head drops, I am lost in an underwater forest of colored prisms. My marbles are too few....

    My muse's name is not a word- -rather, strummed along on strings From the apple of my eye she came When my thoughts first were to be Her body sways when someone sighs, Lost in the art of remembering, And on silent thoughts she sates her need snatched from the cracks in my logic Draped i...

    I wake up slowly, gracefully, My head still soaked with the last drops of sweet dreams One arm under the blanket – warm – One hand on top, goosebumps sprinkling my flesh Good morning, Lady Autumn. Chill spices the air Douses it in a palette of blue, purple, white I watch it frisk thro...

    Rolling green grass Thick, lush Defier of the summer heat Be my carpet for a while White lines Rigid, straight Come off on my hands Draw me a field to play on Proud goals Tall, wide Don't deceive me When it's me and the ball So many players Relaxed, smiling Shinguards a...

    Is that an arch up there I spy? Way up in the red-tossed sky? An arch, a door, a gateway through The answer, a riddle, I give to you What has a hundred wheels to ride But no freedom to turn aside From a path that's all laid out Never plagued by chance or doubt Now let me ask you que...

    My hair a straightened, shining shield More and more of me revealed Shortest skirts to lengthen thighs Rims of black around my eyes Unending energy I fake For now so high they put the stakes All this and more for a glimpse from you What lengths cannot they drive me to? Ugly, yes, I know ...

    The day Jacob came home was September 5th, 1918. His mother was weeding the garden in the front of the house when he came limping up the walkway, a bloody rag holding his thigh together, crutches supporting him on either side. It was the odd clop-thump of the alternating crutches and boot that made ...
