• Anne commented on the post, camera 7 years, 4 months ago

    Francesca used to be the girl with the camera, the girl always taking pictures, the girl I pestered to stop. There are now, thanks to her, several photographs detailing a time in my life I wish I could forget. I […]

  • Anne commented on the post, props 7 years, 4 months ago

    Props is a great word for me, I used to work props in high school. I used to be the prop goddess, the manager, whatever. I used to be a part of a family of weird kids in a house filled with, well, props. But isn’t […]

  • Anne commented on the post, holder 7 years, 4 months ago

    This year, for his birthday, Nicole and I wanted to buy Joe a tacky cigar holder, for his desk next year. We didn’t, of course. I mean, it was an Anne-and-Nicole plan, as opposed to a Nicole-only plan, meaning it […]

  • Anne commented on the post, icing 7 years, 4 months ago

    “That’s the icing on the cake!” she proclaimed to no one in particular, as her car wouldn’t start in the parking lot of the hellish job she worked. There was a knock at her window and she wanted to cry. There was […]

  • Anne commented on the post, instructions 7 years, 4 months ago

    The instructions are to write about the word above, but I don’t want to follow the instructions. I want to write about Ryan Adams. Or, kind of, I’d like to write about Ryan Adams. I want to write about how I want […]

  • Anne commented on the post, stretcher 7 years, 4 months ago

    I’ve never seen anyone carried out on a stretcher, though I’ve come close. I remember, once, a while ago, probably two years ago, my mom had a seizure. I heard her hit the floor, and it had sounded like she was […]

  • Anne commented on the post, sonar 7 years, 4 months ago

    Sonar, like the whales, right?
    Sonar, like, the sensing thing?
    Or is that submarines?
    Sometimes, I felt like I had sonar, always detecting you, even from far away.
    Well, as far as the walls were, where you […]

  • Anne commented on the post, decorations 7 years, 4 months ago

    Decorations for a party
    Fairy lights around the backyard
    Kissing in the artificial twilight
    Because the party started hours after twilight
    But it still seems real, sometimes
    if it’s with the right person
    at […]

  • Anne commented on the post, doorknob 7 years, 5 months ago

    My favorite place in the world didn’t have a doorknob, but rather a bar to push into it.
    It smelled like wood chips and paint and it was where I felt most at home in school.
    But now, when I look back, I wish […]

  • Anne commented on the post, adviser 7 years, 5 months ago

    I’ve never been good at advising.
    Be it in terms of relationships, an area I have little to no expertise in, or in terms of clothing, hobbies, movies, books, I’m insecure in what I like.
    About ‘real’ advisers, I […]

  • Anne commented on the post, railroad 7 years, 5 months ago

    The railroads around Gary
    they’re always empty.
    Sort of like the town
    used to be vibrant, filled with steels, bustling with importance.
    Then, one day, it wasn’t.
    Maybe it was gradual, maybe it wasn’t,
    but […]

  • Anne commented on the post, gasoline 8 years, 8 months ago

    Gasoline makes cars go. It’s often compared to food. Just because food is part of what keeps us running does not make the gasoline to food analogy any more clever or creative. Mostly, I’m kinda sick of it. I prefer to think of myself as someone that eats colorful, luscious foods, not fuel.
