    You are the dew on the morning grass and the burning wheel of the sun. You are the maple leaves falling from a hibernating tree and the milk a Russian Blue laps up. However, you are neither the healthy green grass nor the rays that burn skin to gold. You are not the tree turning bare for the...

    As he reads The Scarlet Letter, the fedora rests on his table, set off to the side allowing rough black waves to pour from his scalp. He spots me and breathes my name, like a delicate Wild Iris sprouting from the bell of a sousaphone. Porter pulls me in with his manic eyes like a magnet—...

    Don’t underestimate the power of a small push from a fifth grade boy on the playground. It can hurt. The conflict ends with the girl crying out and saying, “You’re not my boyfriend anymore! You’re mean!” Because of that small push, the budding relationship is over in just a blink of a...

    Even though it was two summers ago, I still remember it clearly. Even though it might sound untrue the game was the championship game of a soccer tournament. Our team was happy just being there because we were playing a level higher than we play in the regular season. The score was tied 2-2 after ov...
