    The man wriggles and screams in my hands as I hold him down. His neck pulses with his terror and my mouth aches for the promise of that pulse. But this is not for me. This is for you. I look at you, cringing in the alley, cold and pale, tears running down your face. “Do it.” I ...

    Rusty heartbeat, dimming veins Quivering lungs, bruised brain Skin twisted, wooden grain Dying candle, sputtering flame. Shivers trickle, lightening down my spine white panic from the dungeons of my mind I struggle, try to keep the bones aligned But my beating heart is counting down the tim...

    Lock in my throat, Gag, spit and choke, My cheeks bruise and bloat As the man makes a note, Probably a misquote Or my thought he re-wrote maybe a scribble, a quibble, a gloat. Threadbare stare, Spine to chair, Two hours here For one minute there. But I wasn’t there I wouldn’t dare...

    Broken waves and breaking hearts, I walk the beach and feel the shards of crumbled castles on ravaged lands. You brought me water, but I wanted sand. Pale-cheeked cliffs and burning trees, we fell from mountains, feet to knees. You told me that I’d learn to fly, but all I learned was how...

       This is the way you run out to the woods to try your rifle for the first time: feet pounding against the ground, the rifle slapping on your shoulder. “Go home!” you shout to your little brother, Jimmy, who comes pelting after you, all eager-eyed and dirty haired. But he is a pest, and d...

     Desmond awoke from an uneasy sleep with the strong conviction that he was being watched. He lay still for a moment, his skin crawling and prickling—waiting for the residue of his nightmares to leave him fully awake, alone, and sane. In general, Desmond erred on the side of nonchalance if not...

    sky full of teeth bone white and bleached leer in the darkness of shivering galaxies. too dark to survive too bright to hide gasping for air, spun by an uncaring sky. scuttling star shards send their regards unblinking and cold in a sky inky and charred. shut your eyes tight make...

    Up and down and up and down and up and down and up. I bounce my baby sister to sleep, keeping a steady beat on the green yoga ball. The muscles in my legs ache after a while, and my arms are tense from holding her tight against me. Thump and slap and thump and slap and thump and slap and ...

    In a city of concrete scars, You can never see the stars. We paint our face with the blood of the neon light midnight flood. Shallow midnight movies. The city’s almost moody. A hundred dirty secrets. twisted ankle high heel struts. Wipe your hands on your jeans, we’re splitting at the...

    I try to tell him The simple truth which is: Monsters hide where You don't expect to see them. In obvious places: The zipper of your coat, Inside your coffee, Peeking out of the clouds. But They hide everywhere. There is no escaping them Because there is no predicting When they will co...

    Up the midnight sky, stars wrestle the dark. Spanned out in glory they fill the sky with diamonds to be mined. Such beauty, no one sees. Up at midnight, I was a small shadow in a large one, though I could not tell if I was melting or resisting the dark. Pixels snapped and his...

    I came into the movie theater to see “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” like a Hobbit who is anticipating second breakfast. My first figurative breakfast had been baked in the oven of my love for J.R.R. Tolkein’s masterful prequel to the “Lord of the Rings” series and seasoned with my ...
