    I twirl the neck of the bottle of Chardonnay, atop the piano, letting the remains swish around at the bottom. A man looks me in the eyes as if to say say I can’t help you. Well, I can’t help anyone. I go home broke and lonely, but it’s okay, because I get free drinks, and they listen to me ...

    It’s dark out and there’s a twisted deer lying on the side of the road. It’s innocent eyes look up at me from its body, sprawled in a shallow ditch with its four legs splayed out. Its hooves awkwardly burrow and plow in the dirt. The wrong curve of its neck...

    You broke me apart so easily, with your bear hands, you would have thought my limbs had perforated lines for you to tear on. When I told you, you apologized, but not before I began to run away from you, in the opposite direction. It's not like you had plans to stay...

    She is unpredictable. Within one hour she can tell you about how the weather is far too unbearably cold for her liking and be a**-naked in a tub full of ice water, with a lemon-cherry Popsicle and a collection of Thoreau’s essays sprawled out on the tiled bathroom flo...

    With a heart made of one fifth vodka: I solely pity the smallest children not to say I don’t pity the other children I do, I do but it is the little ones for whom I cry so so often. and When my ribcage is made of peppermint sticks: it is for adults that I do not care they m...

    the freckles on her arms lead up to her shoulders, and lick her face like fire leaving blemishes like constellations that tell intertwining myths. she tells me her heartbeat keeps slowing down, and there will eventually come a point when it will stop and she will die. i ...

    The wind hums a song, slightly out of tune. Her fingers tap the bench seat to the beat of her namesake’s song. The moon is not present tonight. She wonders where he has gone, and how long his vacation will last. His light is missed in the dark night sky, when streetlights outshine stars...

    I crept into your bedroom from behind the door. You were asleep, or maybe your eyes were just closed, and you were so good at dying, that when you were conscience, I believed you were asleep.
