    September is the changing time. It’s when all of a sudden, tests start layering on top of each other like middle schoolers planking at a mall. The blistering Georgia heat is torn away in fits and starts, clinging on to every last lazy minute—but time has moved on. The pace and the breeze and tha...

    I know I don’t have time But I just can’t stay away I can’t let that world get dusty Let my people fade to grey They may say that you’re not real That I should live on Earth instead But I can’t ignore the faces That are dancing in my head I make excuses just to see you, You who po...

    Fog swallows our voices Silence louder than words The world has faded to A muted grey And I am small. The stillness shattered by a Melancholy bell A cry to the seaman Of hope, of longing, of Fatal attraction As rocks quench bright souls no more. They cry out Tales of past tragedies Love...

    On the rare occasions when rain visited the desert, it was like Armageddon had broken loose from the sky and was assaulting the car. The raindrops fell like hammers. Adjusting the windshield wipers of the rusty ’96 Buick, the man swore at himself for what he was about to do. He was a skinny twent...

They don't belong. Their cadence i...

    A flash I turn my head The wind chimes like an out-of-control carousal The trees tossing, wringing their hands like a schoolgirl, no, like a widow--- wringing their hands like one separated from her love Bare branches demanding reparations from the dark skies I sit, sheltered and ordinary, yet ...

    Verse 1 What if it’s all a lie What if I’m just another girl And I just misread your eyes What if I’m not part of your world? (instrumental, 4 count) As I cry myself to sleep Thinking here I go again How can I face the world tomorrow And pretend to be your friend I gotta act like not...

    I am alone. When my eyes open, this is my first thought. I am lying on the ground in a smelly and torn blanket next to a river.
