    the shadows of the tree’s hands stretch out across the blazing sand. blocking the sunlight from my face and my cheerful attitude displaced. hiking through this desert now I have often wondered how all life here does not burn away. this ancient tree, a shriveled oak, is all that...

    i sit in class, among a throng of chattering mouths; motor boating along at uneven intervals. the cold of the morning rain has been chiseled into my bones by the heart-broken wind singing around the tall turrets of the school. i stare at my stiff fingers; moving each individually against the blue pl...

    yesterday, I lay in my fishbowl world staring at the ice cube clouds beginning to curl. I wove a pair of fishnet doves, and set them free without any gloves. the grass was growing much too short, it’s length made for a phlegmatic sport. slicing shins and hacking calves. when did rugby ever ...

    The world outside my front door is a disappointing place. Cookie-cutter houses, with neat lawns and matching shutters, sit side-by-side in a maze that suburbanites call a Development. Each house reflects the designer’s objective: construct three models that can be rotated and switched across what ...

    Thoughts are heavy sometimes They push, and shove beat, and hammer bludgeon. Some of these that I have frighten me. Scream. Yell. Shout. Bite. Slice. Stab. Only for a second they sit on my mind. Teetering on the edge of action. Swiftly they are replaced. Cry. Sob...

    To my (unfortunately), recent ex-lover Let me try to explain. See, I feel like we’re walking (in opposite directions) down a one-way street. and our mutual feelings are just a single fleeting thought, encouraged by a desperately clinging urgency. Like when you see someone, across ...
