A Cup Of You

"I wanted to tell you that this feeling trembles inside me and somehow it makes sense. It pounds in my chest like thunder holding its breath."   I wanted to tell you your kiss is a relapse full of irresistable, I trace them on my lips and feel...

Or, gasms.

I'm feeling a particular shade of lonely and the windows are too bright, all that light has never had a home in me. But she had a scar above her waist I could taste in effegies- a smile you could lie for, so I'm a quarter past wasted and reaching for...

A Rock > Heart Break (aka Let's Just Pass The T/H-ime.)

I woke up this morning in a panic, dripped wet as if from a fever dream, and as I watched the dim sun begin to reen between the curtains, I was surprised to find the world had lost its nameless hue, surprised to find I must have sweat the blurry...

For Madmen Only

I've never known what it's like to be first choice. My whole experience has been the same in gym class and love - never last, but always third or second; trying desperately to make capatin but coach won't let me off the bench. Two out of three is...

Papa Didn't Preach (He Let Stupid Undo Itself)

I was never very close with my father.   He and my mother divorced around the time I was 12, but he's always been a constant in my life. He paid our bills, helped how he could to put me through school, and even got me my first job. My first job...

Free-Write Chained To You

If you want to feel beautiful, just let me in. It could be just like when I ran around Archer and front steps, waiting for you to trample me out of breath. Bruises I'd forget in a wince. Kisses no one'd ever see, trees chestered green until November....

Carl Is In, Jury's Out. (An Ode To Passion)

"You've got to dig deep," Said George. "You can't keep fighting yourself when there's already so much out to get you. Let the doubt come from other people, let insecurity come from outside, not in. You've got to dig deep, and when you do, dig deeper....

Girl I Can Upgrade You (Once You Uninstall Me.exe)

It was that moment where you look at a woman and your brain goes all crazy and decides 'I want to be her anything.' And I don't mean that to be romantic. I mean, I wanted to be her any-thing. Ideally, sure, maybe I would be some kind of person or...

Part - Core

As any other day we worked, we marched. We tumbled from our little corners with beds unmade and wet with last nights dreams. All at once haggard streets erupted in Khaki, Gray, and Blue colored jumpsuits - the standard uniform of whatever it was we...

So What Was Churchill Like?

I’m at this weird threshold where I’m just coming out of being young and slowly transitioning into not being young. And that’s how I have to phrase it. I have to say I’m becoming not being young, because there’s no way I can consciously say that I’m...

Louis CK - Comedic Artist

“I’m not religious. I don’t know if there’s a God. That’s all I can say, honestly, is I don’t know. Some people think that they know that there isn’t. That’s a weird thing to think you can know. 'Yeah, there’s no God.' Are you sure? ...

Yakkity Yak (Friends Talk Back)

"I can’t tell if he fucked up or if I’m the one who made it this way." My naivety and frank lack of judgement must have been a buoy in my eyes, beckoning the broken like a lighthouse. More than once I’d found myself a reprieve for the desperate, an...
