a man opens the door,
says the stuff's on the table,
and she smiles, a dark-eyed blonde,
tall, slim with cheekbones,
dents in the carpet,
wraps herself in a curtain
then says I'm famous,
flushed,aggravating the new skin
behind her earlobe,
walks into the bedroom,
sleeps through all her visuals,
scrapes a city together,
coins sewed into the eyes of faces.
skin breaks and he asks for a tape,
she agrees with her legs,
but he leaves for court dates,
so i mop the basement, bottom stairs,
identify the mold
lodged under my fingernails,
hang my hand until it glitters
like a picture of tokyo,
her lipstick on cigarette butts
while the coroner pens,
a recording device implanted
behind her forehead.

Song for a Dying DogTo our dog, Geddy, mixed, Rottweiler-Cocker spaniel, 16 years oldSong for a Dying Dog1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
In a language that transcends language,
I would say the words love
pushed me to say, letting go in an instant.
Empty light of stars rained down
for me to hold against your ears, listen:
the soft click, click of dying light.
Mom whispers sutras, every one
she knows leaves the tongue: Long, rolling
coiling words that capture the nothingness
you are heading off to. A boat, a doggy house,
your old friends in the dying light.
The sun against the house, colored
like tinted sugar, a birthday cake
made of cream and condensed milk,
a thousand of the sweetest things
to fall against the bitterness of the throat.
I hold you, I hold you
like a dream in the morning
I write this in the hopes that you
will take it along (in some form
or another) as you enter the new world.
Your paws will scuff the paperwork-ed desk
and the long-faced attendants will chase
after you like grief chases
love, and song, and summer blossoms.

a week past the end of the world,
and there’s something therapeutic
about not caring. I must’ve
really messed up in another life. I
wake up shaking and forget to sleep
shaking and hold your hand, shaking,
remembering the moment I became
poison. I feel crazier than ever; cementhead’s
good and gone with his plastic wrists
and missing soul. the boy who entertains
his unfriendliest nightmares couldn’t
muster up enough innocence
to make it right. (today, he writes
a letter; dear Sophia, he tells me
it doesn’t get better. I’m
locked up for a crime I
didn’t commit. you did it,
Sophia. you built me
wrong.) but you know me,
I fell in love with a problem I
couldn’t fix, a boy blinded
who’s never seen the light.
He was a stormy violet but I
am cyan graying with age--
I spent most of my life dying,
and the rest of it wishing I
was someone else. they tell us
only god will see your ugly;
and the girl who swallowed

Canning SeasonCanning season is that wonderful time of year when you never have a moment to yourself - it's all four in the morning mason jar sterilizing, neighbors making coffee in your kitchen before you're even dressed because they have cabbage, too (or carrots or apples or string beans) and you've invited them over with a truck load because you know extra hands make all the difference.Canning Season1 year ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
It's the time of year when the kitchen is never comfortable - if the water's not on to boil, the oven is warming and full of jars, or the space around the table is all buckets and elbows, paring knives, sweaty brows and chatter.
There is never silence - even in that ten minutes of processing time, when everything stops long enough for a hurried dinner, there's the water-bath-bubbling, jar-rattling rumble of the canner, or the joyous gunshot snapping of the lids as each jar seals.
Those days are filled with wood smoke, steam and the smell of apple butter reducing in the large copper kettle that once lived with your

the dismal cold

in folds of the moor,

a shudder curds

how raw trees snap

from mountain forests
to stranded hangings,
giving frailty when it can't

bones and out of this skin and
this skin is growing roots down into
the core, the core of me
and myself and this skin
- oh, this skin
this skin is thicker than you will ever believe.
if you told me that you had sunflowers
sprouting from the corners of your
eyes then i'd have no choice but
to believe you. you are a child of the sun,
you have wheat growing under your
shoulder blades, you have been flecked
with a ginger paintbrush dipped in solar
rays, you are soft-lipped and you,
you are warm
i might be sunburnt but this organ is over
seventy kilometres deep and i can't feel
the touch of your uv arms underneath all
i don't want solace dripped over me like

not if i'm different to how i was before
Clumsy Acquaintance [Chekov x Reader]Fortunate enough to have a wealthy and friendly classmate in your graduating class of 2261, you were now spending your grad night on Rigel II, an M-class planet in the Kandari sector of the Alpha Quadrant and notorious for its reminiscence of 21st-century Vegas, Navada back home on Earth.Clumsy Acquaintance [Chekov x Reader]2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The Cabaret, a popular club, was currently occupied by some 130 new graduates, among which was you. Jack and Sylar had demanded you accompany them, and since they were your only friends on this outing, you had agreed.
It wasn’t that you didn’t enjoy the atmosphere; the loud, fried electronic music, the scantily dressed men and women performing, eager dancers rubbing up against one another on the dance floor, it was kind of fun. In fact, your eyes were currently fixed on a curvy, copper-toned woman displaying her wanton flexibility against a very lucky pole. The thing is, it was nice to look at, but it really wasn’t your scene. And neither did it appear to be that of an uncomfo

iv. the poetry written on my bones fading with all the sleep i drank (till the drunk of November mornings), the dreams melting off like the stars which ate away at my skin and left me bleeding—dying.

Psalm for Young PeopleThough I am still young, through my trials and suffering I feel old.Psalm for Young People2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The world heaps on my back burdens to numerous to count,
And the mocking from those who taunt me is great.
Release me from these chains O Lord!
Bind my wounds and carry me to your gardens of healing,
Seal my forehead with your holy spirit, and guide my feet
So though I walk through sinful places with snakes striking at my heels,
And evil beasts roaring on either side,
My steps will leave clear springs of pure water,
Where the deer and the sparrows shall find rest.
And on that day when I step my last step, and fall into your presence,
Your Holy Sprirt will carry me from this world
And into your perfect paradise.

Rewind, the air wrinkles into

High-pitched tires are slashed by the

sometimes you have to let go
of monsters and magic and guns

let the music fill the night;

for those slipping into the background,
let me fly like a bird
fetching the summer lady
in the valley of the butterflies.
