    [DREAMER is sleeping at a school desk. Suddenly, she starts and looks up, bewildered.] DREAMER: AAAAAAH! Oh. Hello, Miss Korsky. [she pauses.] Why am I sleeping? [pause.] No, no. Science is important to me. The grade, at least. That’s all that matters, isn’t it? [pause. Then she laughs.] Oh, ...

    Every day, when I get up and leave World Geography for a drink because I’m bored and can’t sit still that long, I walk past that fire alarm. It tempts me. Its sits there on the wall in the hallway, all innocent and sweet, waiting- just waiting! - for something to get lit up so that it can do it...

    Around 2000, or possibly 2001, in a little town in North Dakota, in a house on a nice, straight street there was a girl. And a piano. And an ongoing battle between the two of them. I was the girl. I was four or five at the time, and practicing my piano lessons every day had become the bane of my ...

    I hate to say it, but I’m actually glad you left this time. And not just because your two little sisters’ fighting is driving me nuts. Not just because I want my room, not to mention my bathroom, back. No, this time, it’s actually because of you. You’ve always grown up fast. It’s like I...

    This morning, I heard the pocket of my shirt I wore yesterday jingle. Looking in the pocket, I found a nickel and a dime, and so I walked over to my bookshelf and put them in the jar on the second shelf. It’s a small glass jar, small enough for me to fit my hands around it and just a wee bit shor...

    Sadness fills the unturned pages of my mind I’m like a book left on your shelf, You meant to read it but you never tried You never care, so I guess there’s no reason for me to hide All I wanted was a little bit of love, but you gave me empty lines And so I’m out From now on No more fa...

    She decides that eleven o’clock is about the right time to call. He should be up. She remembers that eleven is her unlucky number, so she changes her mind and picks 11:08 instead, because eight is her lucky number so things should balance. 11:07. She’s realizing how nervous she must be, to tru...

    My phone was on my pillow. The night was dark with shades of blue. I didn’t mean to love him, I know now it was always you. Dying from your silence, a thirst that went unsated, Waiting for you to get the news. It was late. But I waited. I was in a place in Europe. I just emailed you ba...

    Two years I’ve known you, and you refuse to change And it’s four for him, but still he says the same You say you’re ugly You hate your hair But if you looked though his eyes, It’s a magic mirror Hey, Flygirl When you sing, did you know he hears? [Chorus 1] Hey, Flygirl Did you he...

    The dream was in a massive hall, packed with people bustling around. Some wandered aimlessly. Others called names, nervously shouldering through the masses of people. I knew no one. The people had no relation. Some were tall, others short, others fat or thin, a million shades of skin and hair and ey...

    I guess we played our last game, But too much rhymes with your name For me to go on my way and say nothing I guess we ran our last race But I’ve seen your face So many places that I had to say something About how I know how people fade But even once I’m all gone away Please don’t forge...

    First day of sixth grade, I sat and watched the sky Counting all the stars and waiting for one to shine And you weren't the fairy prince I'd always dreamed about But your Hollister tees and stonewashed jeans won out And before you love was a word on a page Before you I didn't cou...

    She kicked a rock on the way home. It was a small rock A reddish, ruddy color was splotched across gray Like a character’s blush on the pages of a dry book A little bit battered Like maybe it had been kicked before… Well, SHE sure had She had been kicked around all day And it crossed h...

    Can I tell you something? Once there was a girl. She had a life It was kind of crazy And she kept secrets- Collected them- Hoarded them in her pink room- And messy locker- And big gray eyes- And she was stretched- Beyond belief- Beyond recognition- Tightened tensions- Like too many litt...
