    Air. I can’t breathe. My lungs have imploded; I’m crawling into a ball, straining to detach myself from the chaotic din and blurred outlines of the psychedelic haze swirling around the room. “I am so sorry,” a voice says, breaking. I clap both hands over my ears, twisting out from b...

    I want to Fly Be the bird Of envy Skittering across the Crystal blue sky Shed everything That’s holding me back And reach up and Join the place I belong I want to Look back and laugh Remember the old days And turn and leap Forgetting the life I’d never wanted to have Really neve...

    Being a judge is never easy. First, you have to be able to listen to both sides of the story and give everyone a fair chance, even when one of the stories is so obviously fabricated and made up on the spot that you just want to throw the gavel on that lawyer’s head. Second, you must never all...

    I remember the day you asked me out, a frozen Friday in early January. There I was, milling in the halls after school with my best friends Jill and Phoebe, planning where to go next, wearing the green shirt that said “Don’t call me cute” with black skinny jeans, a Yankees sweatshirt tied casua...

    Empty shells that at a time were eyes I am concealed behind a complex, fabricated disguise Skin that’s ashen and dry as sand All signs of possible awareness have been shut out and banned Running my gaunt fingers across the dusty recesses of my mind Reminisces have left me hollow, frozen, ...

    Burning anger, A shade of doom. The way it feels Fluctuating between embarrassment and despair With a blush Flooding from your hairline To your chin. A sense of sweetness Buried in a plump rose, A glimmering ruby Catching the light. The feel of a burn, The feel of pain, As the bl...

    Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. The words sound toneless, although I’ve been hearing them all day, pulsing in my brain. HapPY birthDAY . . . “Shut up, shut up, shut up,” I chant underneath my breath. Doesn’t help. I check my cell phone. Reflex reaction. I can’t help i...

    I’m sitting here on the banks of the river, watching the sun slowly descent. The sky is on fire. I know it sounds totally cliché, but it’s true. Lemon yellow, fluorescent orange, burning scarlet, and royal purple dazzle my eyes. Grabbing the digital camera that I carry around like a baby carrie...

    Life’s a goblet. Why not drink? Life’s the ocean. Why not surf? Life’s a cliff. Why not imagine the utter freedom of the fall? Life’s a couch. Why not sit? Life’s a microphone. Why not pick it up and sing? Life’s a pen. Why not write? Life’s a compu...

    Looked at your spending lately? Well, what have you spent the most money on? If you lived in Woodrow Wilson’s family, you’d have spent the most money on, not clothes, but books! Do you ride on horseback constantly? If so, you might have been a great friend of Calvin Coolidge, who rode a mechanic...
