    We of the fidgety hearted, We of the fragile minded, We don't know where we're going, except home. Wherever that is. Whatever that is. Don't think about who does and does not cherish you. That line of thought, though straight, but will lead you nowhere. (Ever.) And we of...

    Bless your bad posture and your shifty eyes when you eat. Bless that one strand of hair that is forever indecisive. Out of place, it sits rebelliously on your shoulder. Should it fall in with the rest? Bless your one-word answers, your silent stare into what seems to be nothing but, really, who know...

    Wanna tie a rock around my hate and throw it in the sea. Don't matter where it goes, at least it ain't near me. Wanna gather up my anger and hurl it into space. I'll hope it goes away disappears without a trace. Wanna put a muzzle on my rage and pull it from my head then...

    Mother and daughter asleep upstairs deep in dreams and unawares of the robber, down below heartbeat quick, yet breathing slow Through the garden, he had crept At silence, he was most adept The window was a perfect entry There was no dog or pesky sentry The robber hardly touched the floor...

    Sleep won't come. I am left with my thoughts which simmer until the sky lightens in the east. I am left with my brain which rolls and tumbles and frolics in my skull uncaring that it denies me rest. Sleep is all around me. The crickets and I are the only ones untouched by Mab's white finger...

    I wonder if you were surprised By how easily I said goodbye. I wonder if you stayed awake Because you could hear our strings break As I cut them away in my head While I lay, undefeated, in bed And the sound traveled far from my room. I wonder if you just assumed That I would be missing it...

    We weren’t even there yet When you took off your hairnet And said softly “Park it.” And in the dark, lit A pre-smoked cigarette And with the mood set Said “This is starting to seem Like a carpet, steam cleaned.” You got out of the car “It’s fine, it’s not that far.” ...

    What does the wind do when it’s tired? When does the sun take a rest From rising with all of its fire Just to tumble down into the west? When does the sea stop its constant motion? When do the waves go to sleep? Does the rain grow bored of its endless devotion? And will the stars ever cea...

    My fingernails are awfully dirty. I’m counting clouds, (there are thirty) And reading a book. Is that nerdy? I asked my friend, Mr. Birdy, Who sat there, looking very purrdy. Sadly, I don’t think he heard me. I asked mom, who was not reassuring And said, instead, Please shut up And go ...

    She was born into the world in the rainy month of May. Her mind was simply space, which was filled without delay. And as she grew, the void was filled. One could even say that the blankness in her head was doomed to never stay. Dolls and dreams and magazines were rooted in the chasm Which be...

    Jonathan’s sleep was undisturbed in the car. He was warm and comfortable with his favorite blanket, the low hum of the engine a mechanical lullaby to his ears. But the tires soon hit gravel, and Jonathan began to crawl out of slumber. The sudden heart-wrenching crunch of the stones shook him com...

    She was born into the world on the 17th of May, Her mind a white space, which was filled without delay. And as she grew the void was filled. One could even say That the blankness in her head was doomed to never stay. Dolls and dreams and magazines rooted in the chasm It became a pleasant cl...
