    as I grow old will the red of my hair pull away with the tides leaving me barren and white, like the moon above us, a mother and a daughter to the earth: I will have neither, even great-grandchildren grown tired and weary of adventure will my bones become birdlike releasing their insides ...

    You only see her now, after she’s ruined, spine echoing the wide curve of her stomach as she slumps awkwardly down on the warped mattress, too exhausted and relieved to compare it to her lilac sheets at home.

    The seaside was littered with glass bottles, bird bones, and shells. Seaside is accurate; the sea did not touch any portion of land that the humans had claimed. Land didn’t meet water: they barely touched, each pulling away in disgust at the other. Sea disgusted at the inhumanity of the industrial...

    I have a confession. It’s a problem that only a rich girl could have and I probably should shut my pretty little mouth up and go socialize instead of complaining about what you want. But I won’t. I am too perfect. I do the right things always, people say that “you can count on he...

    On this silver night you say You want to die And leave me in this crazy world All alone, without you Over and over, you tell me to go Never think of how it feels To leave you there in this crazy world All alone You wonder if you die, would someone miss you Don't see the hurt spill ...
