    Before I met with you that night, you asked me if I needed a map to know where I was going. Of course not, I told you, and so we walked together, from the East Side to the West Side, along the edge of the Hudson when the nights were still meltingly hot, but I craved your touch anyway....

    When I was in first grade, Pokémon was the in thing. I went to a small Catholic school where your mother knew everyone else's, and where they all converged to create little activities for the class. One such happening was Friday-night bowling. The only problem was that the balls were as heavy as us...

    After already having lost some of our kind to the hungry university beast, we drove home together in the cool ending of summer. We shared a pipe full of dried plant and meditated over our fears and hopes for the last time before those of us who remained, would be swallowed up, too....

    Your face lies in state, unperturbed, as if you were sleeping and someone slathered your face with cheap makeup. Those agile athlete's legs lay, too, toes pointed up in the air. I look at you and ask myself, where was I when your heart stopped, when you ceased to exist, when...

    It could have been me, or any one of my friends, invincible and immortal, the thick gusts of wind in our lungs and our full bosoms alive and pink with youth. It could have been me, or any one of my friends, unaware and ignorant, believing our own hype and putting our brains, us...

    Alex is dressed in the same green t-shirt, the same blue jeans, but says he feels like a man. He walks with a faster stagger and a firmer upper lip in a chemically induced daze that he says has changed him. Alex is dressed in numbers, varsity numbers from stores that have pre-worn his c...

    Two days, two nights spent in the company of others half-strangers, half-hearted. A mass of young bodies bumping into one another, walking the maze. I have seen both sides of this, been drunk out of my mind and swimming in my own bile, kissing one of the half-strangers on his bed in a n...

    Morning comes on time, without fail, and your heart can pound you into unconsciousness or oblivion. There is no cure for the chronic disease of time, when no one can answer the simple questions. Two strangers who have known each other for years introduce, but who can say just how they ...

    The heavy cold sets in bringing snow drifts and ice through the cracked car glass. There are lights everywhere, I can see them, in the streets, in the houses, in the store fronts, I can see them, yet in no way feel their warmth upon me. I can see them, but only a glimmer that fades...

    The door will not open, it has been knocked off the track, off the hook, off the path, it is stuck shut. There are words that ring out, though, and carry through its periphery through the walls and the locks. I hate you The pound hits the ceiling, and the years have piled up beside them...

    Her eyes unfold upon hearing a voice, low, in the background. No, now it is two voices, back and forth ping pong balls on the table, each player’s paddle struggling for its pound to be heard the loudest. It crescendos to a halt when the ball bounces so high that it is nearly lost for a m...

    I could very easily rattle of my accomplishments. I could list them off one by one as they come to me, and I could dazzle you, I am sure. Yet, people who write about the incredible obstacles they have overcome in their short seventeen or eighteen years are rarely believable. Why should my miracu...

    I thought I saw you standing in the corner of my eye, waiting for me to speak. But it wasn't you, not like I remembered. Your eyes, they were so bright, and I thought something. Something, I could not speak, for, if I were wrong … the cost would be too much. And just when ...

    You have most certainly heard of them. You have most certainly seen some kind of parody on them. They are Snuggies, the sleeved, fleece blankets that have caused a phenomenon currently sweeping the nation. Over 4 million have been sold in their mere year on the market, leading one to ask, how is thi...

    I remember being 10 years old, and laughing idly with a friend, being tugged along the back of her father's boat on a raft, flying high upon the mighty Hudson our freshwater wet hair dripping down our backs, our skin painted red by the sun, the rest of them looking on at us, smiling, s...
