    To the stupid lies we tell and the petty excuses we sell, a toast. To the broken hearts and the dead of night, the eagle's shrill call in its final flight. A toast to the unfaithful boys and the fickle girls. To the offensive noise amongst the tasteless voices. To the promises...

I take laps until settling in the corner of the ch...

    She built a tall skyscraper from pine needles and glue, asked me to hold it up against the cerulean sky. And she climbed the stairs of makeshift bricks to touch each story and start a beginning. I watched her stand at the very top and smiled back as the birds sang above the city. Thunderstor...
