VerbatimOn June seventeenth at 2:33 PM, Jacob Fantana falls off the roof and hits his head. This is the approximate time that Cory later gives him. It is a particularly nasty fall: The house they had been roofing is two stories, built on a hill. At the hospital, the doctors wreathe thick gauze around Jake's head and subject him to a series of tests. Rachel cries as Dr. Dubey explains that x-ray computed tomography has revealed a mild skull fracture and bruising on his inferior frontal gyrus. Jake stares without interest at the diagrams and fiddles with his bandages. He attempts to console Rachel, but he is embarrassed, and worried about his insurance copay.Verbatim7 months ago in Short Stories More Like This

Birth MarkedGrandpa used to tell storiesBirth Marked7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
about the night I was born,
said a lost sparrow with cockeyed feathers
hopped across my right shoulder
and left its mark.
Shifting the sheaf of hair
mom refused to cut short
and craning my neck,
I could just see the cluster
of sharp-edged W's etched like tattoos
across the scalloped scoop of my bones.
In summer heat waves,
I learned to weave my dark tangles into braids
and let the claw strokes breathe,
the thin straps of feather-print shirts
pushed out of the way.
On those days,
Grandpa claimed I could lift my arms, wing-like,
and fly myself into something new.
though the sun is high
and summer nears again,
Grandpa is gone
and I am weighted by dark moods
and black mascara.
Standing at his graveside,
I tell him stories about the parts of him I miss
and the parts of me I hate
but cannot change;
the parts I was born into.
A phantom breeze clutches
the fresh bob of my wayward hair
and for a moment,
I can feel his work-calloused fingers

The DollYou were treating me like I am not a human being,The Doll5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You were acting as if I have got no feelings,
I was blind, I wasn't seeing.
As if I was your doll,
Not even your favourite one.
What do you expect me to do?
You need to realise, I'm gone!
You played by it,
You even hit!
You hit it,
You broke it,
Whenever you felt like it doesn't fit.
And when you wanted to, you would fix it,
With no words, when you just sit.
You sit next to it,
And treat it anyways.
It just wanted you to talk to it,
Even a little tiny bit.
You are the one to blame,
You are the one who walked away,
Whenever I came.
I am sorry,
I can no more be your messed up life's frame.
Your doll is not plastic,
It can NOT be recycled.
I just want you to know,
I used to believe we were meant to be.
But I can no more show,
My buried feelings.
Your doll is not plastic,
It can NOT be recycled.
It can't keep looking fantastic,
Like the first time you picked it.
I want you to remember these words of mine,

Harry Potter AnalysisThe wonderful world of Harry Potter has touched countless lives upon its release. It contains many colorful elements from magic and fantasy to fighting bald snake people with little wooden sticks. Yet at the same time, despite touching so many countless lives, the ever-popular series has not been without its fair share of criticism, a large portion of which may not have been completely unfounded. Harry Potter has been said to promote more than a few more shady practices. It wouldn't hurt to explore and prod some of them in scholarly analysis.Harry Potter Analysis5 years ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
