               I found her near a lake. Drenched in insects and covered with grass stains, she was sitting by the edge, searching for something in the pristine ripples. The tide was slowly receding as I approached her. The clouds parted to give my privacy, and the winds picked up to distract a...

    Entry 1: The tree was leaning over, an old man whose heart refused to stop beating but with dead limbs attached to his torso. The gravel was biting his sandals, occasionally hitching a ride on his toes. The morning grass was damp, providing a quick rinse but also a shine from the shivering rays. ...

    A terrace lies in the plain White curls through the drawers Gray seeps into curtains The stair creaks as the town sleeps Color sprinkled in with ancient light Blanketed in curling tendrils of vine Rocking back and forth like a pendulum or chair. Forever cracked, forever curved, forever rigid...

    A cracked screen 2 holes side by side A perpendicular train crossing underneath Two mountains emerge on opposite hemispheres Shoelaces tie the middle A thin strip of ice completes the picture Rows of gleaming marble lay inside Sandwiched between is a snake the color of embarrass...

    The birds are chirping good-morning to each other The lawnmower is playing its fanfare And the applause of the AC fills the void Lying on the remnants of an ancient being Its relatives surrounding me, having lived through conflicts of love, war, and passion The bricks lying in perfect...

    I can see you’re in a box All by yourself with nowhere to hide Surrounded by darkness and a poison on the floor. You make no sound; no movement. Scratching, purring, and mewing are all absent I would like to reach out to offer my help, my advice, my condolences But I deflect at ...

    On life: The average lifespan is around 27,375 days. Your telomeres shorten and your cells wither. Important DNA strands lost in oblivion. On the Human: A structure made from stars. Governed by electrical and magnetic impulses. A combination of structure and fluidity. A being meant to change...

    The boy walks aimlessly around A crown of wavy brown on top and comfortable walking shoes on bottom. He greets his mother Stopping by every squirrel Sniffing every flower The tall building looms overhead Blotting out his shadow His complexion darkens, his eyebrows furrow like the opposite o...

    I tell the birds good morning and they chirp back at me Ants, spiders, beetles crawl under my feet like the overlord of this dominion meanwhile the eternal traveler reaches its zenith, casting a warm, dark glow on my body an imprint, the shadow of a higher being I will never see. He control...

    Like a skater’s shoes forever on the move One wheel to the next one pavement to the next. The farm has withered and the crop has moved, but still the grain stays. Doomed to never be harvested it quickly moves from the beginning to end water moving up the stem diffusion. Nutrients arching ...

    Disappeared down an alley knives flashing their deadly color An endless spurt of red and green with the hint of quicksilver The ghost is twice dead Back for round three A perpetual ring of circles Dazzling in brilliance and virtuosity Broken with the tap of a hammer The end coming before th...

    A winding journey down the path Sharks and minnows dart at the trees An endless beginning, a tale with no end or start like a race for participation no places or medals gold from the mountain silver from the mines bronze from the pennies A mobius strip of decisions All leading to the final ...

    Part I: The room is brightly lit Candles shimmer like starlight, spreading warmth to a solitary figure, curled up on the concrete floor Paintings hand on walls, a wormhole to another time and place. There are no chains, no shackles, no locks in the room But the person inside is serving life, d...

    The two squirrels are close They follow Jumping around in the grass Their bushy tails giving away their next move A fly drops by on my notebook A collage of red and black fill the top right corner The squirrels have gone and a robin approaches Seeing me, it flies away alarmed. Its cry callin...

    I can see them if I try hard enough. Little black dots, swarming red armies or behemoths that rule the world. I wonder if they remember, if they love, if they learn They move with purpose, a solitary figure far away from home Having to brave huge earthquakes, sudden tsunamis, and violent tornad...

    Cloudless days, a slight breeze, the sunlight gently massaging my body. I am invincible, soaring higher than the sky, confident in the joy I ensnared. A sea of white, humid air, bright but dull I lose the spring to my step, the jump in my skip. I wonder what is wrong with me. Patches of white,...

    The Human Being Never Existed What an absurd idea Here I am today, speaking to you. And yet you say my species, me people don’t exist? But I see your reluctance still, fine. I will prove to you my argument. Look at the Eiffel Tower, the Washington Monument, the Grand Pyramid. All made by...

    January 6th, 2010: My name is ST-117968. I’m telling you this because in about five minutes, my captors will come back to finish me off. There is no escape for me, there is no triumphant return for me, no reunion with my family. Ahhh, my family. My sweet and loving Caroline had just given birth t...
