    Somehow, this year has been different. I can't quite put my finger on it. I think it's that this year I have learned what a privilege it is to be remembered. All around me every day, lives are being lived. Lives unimaginably different from mine. People with different names go home to...

    My city is not a virgin one. We have seen the redcoats' bayonets, the shackles of the slave trade, the gore of civil war, brother slashing brother. But never have we seen a bomb. My city has seen hurricanes. We have been whipped by blizzards, and licked by waves of heat, My peop...

    Today I saw a backpack. My backpack. On a porch. It was a brown, plaid backpack; rather plain-looking. It was on a deck. The deck was smooth and beautiful; at least, you could tell it had been. The weather had wearied it and it now had a smudged, aged, damaged look to it. I took about ten paces ...

    You made me your jack-o-lantern, and I'm not sure who to blame. You took me in, made me feel hollow, and put me out. And now, whatever happens, I can't get this stupid grin off my face. I feel thoroughly gutted, just so you know. you cut me open, can't you see?...

    Your nervously flushed face is the most endearing thing. Honey, don't you understand that you can trust me by now? No, I suppose you don't. But just because you don't grasp it yet doesn't mean it's less true. The carpet seems to have gotten interesting. What is it about the ...

    What’s on my mind? Wow, I don't even know. The world is, I guess. Our world of tomorrow. These forthcoming decades will be us children’s alone, And I pray we can handle them once we’re all grown. The leaders before us did mostly alright. Sure, the majority of minds could be ...

    We inch along, the claymations, slow and without emotion. This life moves fast, and is a gift. So why must we lack devotion? Take one or take ten, it's all the same; we've grown so bored and jaded, we've missed the point of the game. I wish we would realize that we're all...

    His eyes just glare as he stands in line, 'Cause lunch crowds just aren't worth his time. You glance his way, he squints at you: Don't you realize he's got cooler things to do? His vulture-gaze preys on self-worth; He's been above this crowd since birth. His voice...

    The sweetness diffuses through my mouth, sending each bud it touches into ravenous overdrive. My brain gratefully registers this welcome distraction, and I take another square as my heart sparks to life. Sure, this world is still turning. Sure, we’re all still such fools, How we snap at each...
