Daydream II

When she is with him there is a wild-eyed vulnerability in his face that makes her fall again and again, something uncertain and anticipatory when he leans in and she had an urge to reach for his hand on the cliff, overlooking rippling forests in relentless existence. She traveled across Mexico with him in her […]

Moon Shadows

Her shoes were the color of sunshine and she radiated beams from her forehead After a night of boxed wine and vodka She lost her fading resolve in the moon shadows and fog while seagulls flaunted their freedom and mocked her And the waves sighed like tired gods at the resignation of human existence Taking […]

Sunset Boulevard II

She misjudged, flooded her burning unrestrained veins, and while she fearfully fantasized she would fall in love to a symphony of bad songs again, her quiet friend in the corner was feeling a secret silence creep in from the corners of the diner. The flash of lights and obscene billboards of Sunset Strip beat against […]

Dream

When your sleeping breath heaves out a tropical breeze Whispering across the steady streams of my back the waves of my spine The warm rhythm of ripples does not end until I am in a dream of Hot white sand on my thighs palms rustling behind And the cerulean crystal expanse before us is urging […]

A Little Perspective

I’m not big on frozen desserts, but sometimes I’ll have a couple of ounces of frozen yogurt topped with fresh blueberries, mangoes, and raspberries. My favorite ice cream is Hagen Dazs Rum Raisin, but I probably only buy the smallest sized carton of this once a year, if that. Being a frequenter of Yelp events, […]

I Feel Like Being A Bitch Today

Some dumb bitch called me twice from a private number and accused me of obsessively calling her boyfriend. I did not pick up the first time and she left a message asking why I was calling her boyfriend repeatedly. The second time, I figured I’d pick up to let her know she clearly had the […]

Never Fuck Men Who Are Anti-Abortion

The Brisbane Times reports a Catholic school teacher threatened  to send an email to the staff and parents of the school at which he worked with a colleague if the colleague went through with a planned abortion. He has been charged with 3 counts of rape for threatening to release explicit videos and mar the […]

Denny’s

she was the straying lover smoking triple purple haze across his street, while watching the lights in his window. a heavy euphoria weighing down the eyelids, limbs, and the air until the night wore thin and she was aware only of shadows converging before a shuddering luminescence, forced to confess to existence, imaginary rapists coming in and […]

Desert Trip

The moments are slow when daylight rules and regulates with its majestic restraint and royal logic but They were driving between canyons and she thought the sky was hers Imagined she was immortal Dreamed she had him once Held a piece of his existence closely, secretly After traffic had dulled the senses she found her […]

Irvine II

she was walking and the paper bag was ready to tear out of her hand from the weight of the hard rain and daydreaming she absorbed the whole cosmos of the winter day into the folds of her brain, streams of hot hatred searing through sulci and gyri until she walked through the double doors […]

Alcohol IV

Jack Daniels in hand she wandered to the boy who had insisted on following her about like a puppy dog all night took a lock of his hair between two fingers and told him his shaggy, dirty blond hair was cute. He touched her lips once and she ran but he kept calling her at […]

Boy

He puppets her so that she flushes every thought from her head and Forces all other sensations from her flesh Until she falls asleep against his warm chest She would see him in heaven if she were allowed in those ranks But one’s own destruction is always more invigorating than another’s So she continued drowning […]

Rural Town II

She grew up in a place where the wind sang at night and Oppressed inhabitants during the day With vigor and slight cruelty But sometimes she would remember the damp southern grass crawling on her skin And fireflies dancing in sticky summer heat With fondness for the backbone of her suburban dreams

Alcohol III

Johnny, Jack, Jim, and other insidious lovers waited restless and lonely on the shelves Until they came to the rescue with acts of self-sacrifice Painting the night into an unforgivable haze After scouring the concrete wilderness all evening Swimming in people and singing of death She awoke next to a boy and the night had been thick […]

Furniture Project Part 2

We thought we were being frugal by acquiring all this free furniture and repainting it ourselves, but it turns out Wal-Mart works some kind of devil magic and manages to sell brand new, satisfactorily functional, and somewhat stylish bassinets with mattresses for as little as $35. Obviously, a $35 bassinet is not going to be […]

Meeting On a Street Corner

Someone told her there were a thousand trillion neutrinos zipping through her body at this very moment, so inspired She fluttered down the sidewalk until she was face to face with him and He pulled her into a kiss on the street corner to mark his territory Puppetted her with small dances while the warm […]

Bitter Heaven

There was the distinct morbidity of childhood, then before she knew it, she was knocking on heaven’s door with a baseball bat in one hand a bottle of Jack Daniels in the other. How nice that you believe in an afterlife and will have a warm home basking in the glow of god waiting for you […]

Alcohol II

Winter broke her like a disease. That night, someone confessed to wanting to be an actress and fucking minors. Does it make you feel younger? She asked. Tonight, our wrinkles will be deferred by cheap whiskey, this magic bottle of fluid gold. They wasted time because they did not know. There was something romantic in her mythologic desperation, the […]

The Week

Monday she woke up still drunk at 11:30 and called people to confirm her friend’s brother had indeed showed up at her ex-boyfriend’s door and together they finished the Johnny Walker Red, spiked a carafe of orange juice at Denny’s with cheap vodka, the color of light sunshine for a heavy heart, bottled oblivion. They […]

WTF I Ate Moldy Tortillas

Father, I have sinned, for I ate medium rare steak twice in the last two months, had sushi (salmon, not tuna, to avoid mercury), and also drank more than 12 ounces of coffee on one occasion, perhaps two. I also had a taster of beer recently and a bite of shrimp ceviche. They tell pregnant […]
