dropped

i dropped my heart on the pavement as you walked by. Don’t think I’ll be able to pick it back up for a while. I see your face and my jaw drops. My heart beats on the sidewalk.

reports

reports are a cool thing. you can write reports about anything really… i feel like they refer to the business world. or else school. where students have to hand in reports or they get report cards. business world people are just required to write up reports on whatever. i am in english so i will probably have to write many reports if i am a writer.

blotches

Faces. How many faces have blotches. They would always distract me as I would talk to a chubby pale skinned girl… Her face consumed by the red blotches. I wonder what who behind those blotches.

I’m not really sure what to say here… Splotchy things. Which reminds me of that episode of scrubs where Dr Kelso spills coffee on his face and J.D. keeps calling him splotchy. I miss Scrubs. And my friend on the phone who I am talking to also got this word! What a coincidence…

ragged

The bottom of my jeans in high school was always ragged. Then equaled cool in 1979. To my granddad it meant poverty and disrespect. Cool won out. A shame since he is no longer around. His attitude was jeans were for working in the barn.

support

Support yourself from the inside out. You are your own beams. You are the cross ties that hold together all the delicate parts beneath your bones. The rafters crumble and you are responsible for rebuilding the structure.

discover

I discovered yesterday her capacity to endure. Amidst a crumbling world, she stood, up and out, and she sang her song to a mass of people disillusioned. I discovered that even from her knees she glowed internally, with the fire of a thousand suns. She looked into black clouds and dared them to blot her out. I discovered yesterday that this girl, all limbs and fragile bird bones, she was me. I discovered myself. I discovered.

pulling my feet along the road, turning amongst the beer bottles, the condom wrappers, the bent grass, I find a photograph. The corners bent, smeared with gasoline, the woman looks over the man’s shoulders, eyes dead. The man grips her hands, pulling them, making her his hostage.

I walk down the road, two by two beer cans streaking along it in waves, looking at the white flicks of trash and booze, a broken condom near the side of the bushes, and I chuckle to myself, wondering about love and whatnot. There’s a photo on the corner, bent and covered in gasoline.

fiction

Is that all we ever were? Did I create you solely in mind, to fill me up and give my emptiness a name? You existed as ghost. Left an indentation in my bed, but in my life you are only ever meant to be a story. Nothing real, no substance. Just the wind in my curtains, a figment of an imagination that needed desperately a tale to tell.

success

I kept trying and failing. Would I ever find success?

notice

I notice that I don’t have much to say about the word notice.

library

My mom used to take my sister and me
to the library every week. My mom was an avid reader and passed this love on to me. Not so much my sister. I remember trying to check out Are you there God, it’s me Margaret for the 3rd or 4th time and the librarian asking my mom if it was ok

lucky

I wish I was more lucky sometimes. But then again, I am quite lucky. I was born in a country where I have much more opportunities than others. And within that country, I was born to parents who can afford to give me a good home and a good education. I mean, I even have this lap top right now. I’m luckier than I think, sometimes.

optimism

Optimism, I’ve tried it but it didn’t make good things happen. Now I stick with pessimism… it’s safer.

boa

I found a feather boa in my backyard. It suddenly turned into a real feather boa. It bit me and I died. When I died I saw Jesus. He shaved his beard. it was the most interesting thing in my “death.” The End.

radar

the boat’s radar picked up a strange object on the horizon. As the ship drew closer to the blip, the captain saw that it was a huge…

feud

Fighting is bad it puts offf bad energy for others around you. People dont want to fight and but sometimes people get soooooooo mad that they lose control of there feelings and awareness that its not good for them. People hate fighting and we should not fight . I had experience with fighting. It was not good, but we are good now.

siren

I heard the siren last night and was petrified, paralyzed with fear. My first thought is always, “Where are the kids? WHERE ARE THE KIDS?” A grim, manic terror fills my heart.

I have control issues. I know I do. They are often triggered by the sound of a siren.

When I know that my kids are safe, I often then pray. Somewhere, someone is in danger.

serene

calm. i need more of that in my life. sadly, I dont feel very serene in my current settings. maybe on a beach or something. certainly not in a 4 child home with a single mother.

panel

Panels = gray tweed, dismal flourescent lighting, bad offices. Also, Meghan’s apartment and her psycho cat. Then my old great team that I was on and all the great times we had. also seaside cottages with bead boards.

grown

Tomatoes were grown outside of my window; reaching almost to the middle. Nothing pleased me more than than to see the red fruit I had grew through so much hard work.

walk

I took a walk the other day. I really enjoyed the sounds of the neighborhood as I went. THe birds were chirping and the sun was shining. As the children played I thought back to when I was young. I used to love running in the field near the house where I grew up.

trees

Life. Having a cycle is a beautiful and painful thing. I wish I could live as a tree does: naked, dormant, new, glowing, naked.

mist

the sea foam green mist was too much to bear as i was walking through the forest to meet my fate. there he was, with his ax, waiting to end my life.

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?

kettle

You’re boiling and you’re about to overload, explode, implode, anything but calm down. I can’t wait for you to grow out of this. You’re like an impossible 2 year old. The kind you babysit and get paid extra for. But no one is paying me to deal with you. I get nothing- not even self gratification- to put up with your immaturity. Grow the eff up and stop calling me black!

Sincerely,
The Pot.

whiskey

she sat at the bar, attempting to keep herself steady on the worn and emaciated stool. she nodded at the man. “double whiskey on ice please” he looks shunned. turns away and fixes her drink.
