    I went to Starbucks and I was in a line a mile long. I just wanted my espresso so I could go home and watch Gilmore Girls on the couch. I wasn’t in the mood for people right now so I just got some cheap espresso from McDonalds drive through.

  • “This is espresso. This is like coffeezilla.” he said to the three year old asking for cup of coffee like his.

    The word “espresso” gives me a feeling. The word alone brings sensations to me of the way taking a sip of coffee makes me feel. Even just the smell of coffee or a taste of espresso cheesecake can lead me into a brief moment where time slows down and nothing else exists.

    An electricity though the veins
    In dark liquid, languid days,
    Force me awake, I need you, here
    What I want so ever clear
    To sleep, to fade, yet I reach for you still
    Like a saint come to change my wicked will
    The battle, the war, the foundations quake
    Cracked open skin, jitters and shakes
    And the teeth, they brown, a visible…[Read more]

    A nice espresso drink is a pleasure while writing. Generally hot, but sometimes iced, the caffeine is often welcome, but even a caffeine free drink is nice. Stimulation of any sort, the association of pleasure with writing — a great combination.

    Time is limited. But this day is eternal. But too many mundane tasks bombard my scattered, sleepy brain. No more! I am putting my foot down. I stand here now, for the all the daylight and moonlight to come, sipping my #espresso and participating in the glorious dance of life. @oznolem #oneword

    She tapped her hands nervously. “I think I’ve had too much coffee.”
    “Yeah, you think?” he muttered, sliding her a bottle of water. She opened it and took a sip. “No, drink the whole thing, please.” He begged.

    My girlfriend needs a shot of espresso each day. Truth be told, I don’t get this necessity. Whereby it impairs her ability to think or function except in a groggy redundancy because of a lack of opaque liquid. Is it then not an addiction? Why are so many dependent on the bean? Beans wrought through labor, sweat, and war. People so against…[Read more]

    Across the streets, the drills had already begun, saws buzzing, and was that a jackhammer? She pulled her pillow over her head and groaned. This was not how she imagined being awoken on her day off. Where were the birds? Where was the breakfast in bed? Alex tossed the sheets aside on top of her as he climbed out of bed groggily.

    builders, are society’s backbone.
    We once sought to build breathe,
    upon coming afloat for air,
    out of that fresh yet old whom,
    we called home.
    We’ve built a home now,
    a foundation,
    for all our worries
    now we blow,
    like light autumn leaves,
    whispering through dry air,
    for a greener grass
    to rest thy head.

    “you see them?” you say carelessly, waving a pale hand towards the invisible barrier between us and them, unbroken glass, clear and clandestine. “they’ll never be like us,” you continue, sweeping your bangs out of your eyes, eyes dark and flickering with some unknown emotion in the muted light. you never say that we’ll never be like /them/, though…[Read more]

    they were builders of brains

  • He said to think of ourselves as builders. layering bricks, foraging for twigs. magpies hoarding pieces of humanity.

  • Lance commented on the post, builders 3 days, 9 hours ago

    Constructing something out of a plan and the fallen forest. Cutting out a sliver of warmth from cold chaos, undoing the seam with the other hand. All building is demolition. Remodeled and condemned.

  • Abby Jelly commented on the post, builders 3 days, 9 hours ago

    They bring mountains up from the ground. They create landscapes like the world has never seen.

  • Our hearts were worn, rubble surrounding us on all sides like walls we could never escape from. We could hear them, the cranes, the jack hammer, the growling and groaning of demolition, forcing us to face the reality that nothing would be the same again. They weren’t here to build, but to destroy.

    He is related to Dracula, she’s sure of it. So why is she on this date? She’s trying to find the good side of everything and everyone. She’s embraced sunshine, happiness and optimism as her core values. She knows Dracula will see that in her, respect it, and not harm her in any way. Guess what? She’s wrong.

    She blinked her eyes. They looked identical. It was spooky. She looked back from the photo to the mirror. Who was this girl? And why did she look so much like… it was too weird to think about. She shook her head.

    “Do you trust me?”

    “Are we related?”

    The dark-haired boy gives her a quizzical look. “… No?”

    “Ah, then you know the answer to your question.”

    The blonde reclines on the couch, a smirk on her pretty face. She never was going to make this easy for him, was she?
