Brothers by Force
Frederic wished he didn't wake up immediately knowing that he'd been drugged, but unfortunately such things were becoming familiar the longer Ethan was back in his life. Most days the trade seemed fair. Reconnecting with his brother often outweighed his eccentric methods, but he couldn't manage any optimism at that moment as he slowly dragged himself to his feet. "I told you not the poppy, it gives me a headache," he grunted, teeth clenched. "That's why I made you this," Ethan replied, holding out a steaming mug. Frederic opened one eye and leaned forward as he sniffed the air. Ethan's smile curled as his frown deepened, taking the cup of t

This Heart
This heart has many rooms but I try to stay out of the ones that sound like you. Rooms where the walls thrum and shiver with your laugh, where the mantle of your smile hides beneath the cluttered memories of your eyes. I can sit there for hours, wondering what could have been, and it's not always easy to lock the door again.

Captain My Captain
"Did you enjoy the food, Captain Lassiter?" The ambassador smiled at Frederic, indicating the empty plate in front of him. Frederic's stomach curled inward as a rush of saliva flooded his mouth, but he was quick enough to put down his fork and smile back. "Please give my compliments to your cook," he replied. It wasn't difficult to convince the ambassador of most of the demands from the Imperial Commission, but it was still three hours later that he and Ruth finally escaped the manor grounds. Frederic was so dizzy with hunger, he thought he might faint. It was why, for a moment, he thought that he'd imagined his first mate knocking on the

Tell me what a normal brain thinks about, and I will do my best. I will take the right trains, I will find the right stops, I will travel from point A to point B and shun the wild wending ways in between. I will give up this mantle of my creation, accept a machine-washable uniform cut from the same cloth as generations before me who laid their dreams to sleep in the blood and bones of the children that would follow them. I am not the sinner or the saint, just some middling human who didn't know any better and I am tired, I am just so tired.

Words Softly Spoken
I won't be afraid of my tears again. Let my guard fall, open my arms wide and I'll say, welcome. Welcome, friends, I'll say, come in. This is your house as much as it is mine. Come in, my friends, come home.

A Million Pieces
"Am I allowed to love you?" They asked me, as though love somehow needed my consent. Love was a wildfire, it was thunder on the plains; it was something that happened to you, the only choice was how you rode the lightning. If you sailed the choppy waters, crashed upon the rocks, and splintered into a million pieces all in the name of "love" then you chose wrong. There was no patience in love. No one had ever done me the courtesy of knocking first and one look was all it took to see there was no shelter here; there was not even a roof. Just a million pieces, shattered in someone else's name. "It's broken," I said, expecting again

Siren Song
I want the crook of your shoulder to bury myself in, breathe deep until I feel anxiety uncoil inside of me, melt in the waters of love so deep fear couldn't step a foot inside without sighing sweetly for that smell on your skin, the one that does me in, damns me and saves me all in the same breath, I am blessed and never knew the name of God except the one I thank for crossing your path with mine, that divine movement evident only in the day I looked across the room, met your eyes and cried, I found you.

Leg to Stand On
I once took a needle to my skin and wrote, 1 > 2 ? —a question and lamentation that I coupled with a desperate footnote But a fraction is infinitely more than zero And I think that my scars have begun to fade, a simple gift of genetics or a karmic universe that has begun to look on me with favor numbers ebbing, slowly ticking back to zero, to equal, like the universe is giving me a do-over One blank slate, blank skin, like spring after being raised in winter, sun breaking, smiling, at last, at me, like an answer: One is less than two, yes, but a fraction is the seed that survives the snows, waiting to breathe in that first ray

Don't Think About Tomorrow
They take one look and they scream, they cry, they stamp their feet and beg, so with hands made of bone, you grab the edges of yourself and you pull, struggle into the resisting flesh and the smile you pinch your lips into is just enough to make them leave. Thank god. You can take it off now.

You Were Not An Aquarium Boy
Sea-glass became your bones, brine your blood, and seashells melded into your skin. You were not quite an ocean when you said "This is your sign to love me." My body was like a building; tall, cold, almost unbreakable. I was metallic and sharp, towering over your waters. I remember taking your hand in mine, conch and coral shells scrubbing my skyscraper wrists, and laughing about how one day you would submerge every last bit of me. Your lips, riddled with argonauts, found my cheek and I cringed at the coarseness. You asked if they bothered me and I finally told you "I think I love you."

Depression (in Eight Parts)
I. I took a walk once, and Depression walked alongside me. "I want to be alone," I told him. "I know," he replied, "Why do you think I'm here?" II. "I have a plan," Depression said to me. "Not today," I said. "I'm tired." He frowned and asked, "How did you know my plan?" III. I gave the weekend over to Depression but he took three days instead of two. "Think of it as an investment," he said. "And maybe I'll let you have a Friday night without regrets." IV. Fallen to the floor I look up and see he's smiling at me. "You know what they say about old dogs." He's doing this on purpose, I know he is- and it's working. "They can't l
