    I look out my window—the window of the world And I’m glad that I’m inside looking out. I see cables and wires and copper-iron casts that keep all the people from escape. They stay hooked up and plugged in and locked out- They don’t seem to mind it at all. But when I peer out of that sq...

    As I write these words for you, I realize one thing: I’m not sure why I’m writing you, since I do not know your name. But I know something else, and these things are for sure: You are not stupid. You are not ugly. You are not worthless. Although I know not your gender, or your background, or...

    Lashes flaked with snow and dust, Lips caked with dry, cracked sand— Hair strands tangled with blades of grass, Soft skin battered with bruises and cuts. Fingernails fettered and broken—chipped paint. Eyes staring open, glittering in color. Mouth gaping open; parted at the teeth. ...

    What if the sky could fall? Would it be warm and gentle or could it crush like cement? Would it wrap you like a blanket or collapse like a brick wall? Are the stars burning hot? Could you hold it in your hand? Would burst into powder? Explode into sand? Could the rainbow paint you up? Co...
