    Fanciful are the dreams Of kids like us, The flamboyance multiplies Like snowballs rolling down a wintry slope Attracting flakes and exploding in girth Broadening as our imaginations When they spill over with fantasies Of billions and Batman and best actor Oscars And chillin' with Chuck...

    Ma façon de penser Est tout tourné, Et tous que je connais Étais faux—tu m’as menti. Je t’adorais, je t’ai donné tout Que ton coeur désirait, Et je pensais que tu étais Le meilleur, le plus spéciaux, Unique au monde, Mais maintenant je vois la vérité ; Tes mensonges son...

    Lightning bug on my shower curtain, Oblivious, bug-eyed voyeur, Couldn't you latch your legs onto Some other piece of ground? You make me self-conscious, Lightning bug, yet you don't Seem to realize just what You've fluttered into. I suppose the privacy Of cleansing rituals Isn't as sacre...

    A little romantic excursion That we’ve planned for a month, We two. The Big Apple is beautiful, We agree, We two, But the question is perpetually On our minds: Is it big enough To hold our love? Through Central Park we stroll, We two, Hands intertwined like crisscrossed spaghetti, Tan...

    We strayed from the path, We two, And hand in hand pushed through the brush, Spreading the plants aside Like butter onto bread, And we came to the mountain, We two, And it loomed before us Like a sleeping giant And we decided to climb it, We two. We bravely scaled its rocky face together,...

    We scale the fence, We two, Shimmying up like squirrels, Throwing ourselves over, Crashing onto the sand, Together, We two. Hand in hand, We walk toward the water, We two, Fingers intertwined like overgrown ivy Ignored by a careless gardener. At the shore’s edge we sit, we two, And ou...

    Approach Shot Gape a little, turn your head to the side. Don’t stare, you say In your head. Don’t even look. Close your mouth, snapping it shut Like an irritated man shutting his door. But her hair fell just so And your eyes frantically dart over. Is she looking At you? No, her eye...

    If Cupid were a mad painter, His studio would be strewn With canvas upon canvas, Our deepest emotions splayed upon them In slashes of vibrant color. Most begin the same way, Colors dancing passionately, Harmoniously spreading across the canvas, Yet some turn abruptly blank And still more fa...

    Strewn along the edges Of a paper plate, the crumbs, Flaky brown monuments To a consumed crust, Mar the plate’s pure surface, Interrupting the endless sea of white With speckles of brown. The plate is a lake; the crumbs Sailboats, gathering before a race, Preparing to cut through the vast...

    Conversation is a chore Without you to spice it up, Your mind spilling words Like a clumsy intern spills coffee And I sink them in, like the trusty Absorbent carpet. Hugs aren’t special When my arms aren’t wrapped around you Like a sea squid, basking In the warmth of your body. Looking...

    I exaggerate it Just a bit To myself. You’re probably not As beautiful as I see you, Or as radiant, or As blazingly smart. The world goes on When you walk by No heads snap round And when you speak No one gives you a Standing ovation. They’re wrong, I tell myself, As I stare in aw...

    Pencil to paper, Hoping to make sense of the Pictures in my head That flick swiftly through My conconciousness like a rogue PowerPoint show, but The pictures are blurred And the titles are written In Dutch. Metaphors, What sense do they make? Compare love to a rabbit, ...

    If you were a boat I would find an oversize Jacuzzi And sail you in it, And you would feel the soothing water Bubble up agaist you, Instead of the harsh crash Of the sea's relentless waves. If you were a bench, I'd put cushions on you So you wouldn't feel The goth ...

    Glowing like an eerie radioactive crater Its light inviting, coaxing, The pool at night is a Masterpiece. Slipping in, penetrating The water’s soft skin, slipping Into another world, another universe Below the surface, where water Caresses me gently, isolating me So serene, so perfectly. ...

    Holy crap, really? I can’t believe it. Impossible, it blows My mind to even think about it, Forcing it to go down Into the depths of the unperceivable, The non-routine, the irrational, A rappeller rappelling into an unfamiliar Dark new sea of Really? Wow, I never Knew that could happen,...

    The God of the Sky and the God of the Earth were bitter enemies. The Sky God was perpetually bored and resented the ever-changing nature of the Earth God’s domain—people bustling about, plant life sprouting up, and the mountains and valleys that gave it a varied texture. Meanwhile, the Earth God...
