    She expelled a biblical sigh, the words of prayer becoming imprinted on her thumbs as her clammy palms clutched the book. The summer sermons were beginning to run farther and farther into midday.

  • hailey rose commented on the post, efficient 6 years, 1 month ago

    The problem was that I wasn’t-efficient. The other’s eyes were eclipsed by theses and write up. Their eyes these scanners, brains computers, hands endlessly moving machines. But I, I just sat on my couch absorbing the Top Model Marathon. Who can resist Tyra’s fierceness?

  • hailey rose commented on the post, measure 6 years, 1 month ago

    A slippery film of flour was left on my hands as the excess floated back into the bag. I measured out exactly one cup for the cake, being precise to the fault of taking ages to do it because momma says baking is a science. But it’s more holy than scientific in my family.

  • hailey rose commented on the post, timid 6 years, 2 months ago

    I was her echo. The weak imitator. Her splayed arms, wild in conversation I copied with a slight flick. She bellowed, i squeaked, timid always behind.

  • Fingertips pricked on the edges of grass over and over and she strolls throughout the oceanic meadow. letting her hands dangle free on the tips. The blue grass maze.

    I followed the railway. I wanted to travel as far as I could see. Maybe then I would be far away enough. Or close enough to something good.

  • hailey rose commented on the post, intrigue 6 years, 2 months ago

    It felt different than usual. There was some sort of pull. Invisible magnetic. But not forced. It slowly dragged me toward him as if I were being hypnotized. I’d never been so intrigued by a man before.

    there were five on his back. Two on top. One middle. Two on the dimples lower down. Like the face on the die, but this wasn’t a lucky roll. He hasn’t rolled the lucky number in a while.

    Drawing play castles in the sand, the waves careen through turrets and drawbridges. I wished that once upon a time was infinite, the sea water erased my wishing star.

  • hailey rose commented on the post, major 7 years ago

    Major Tratman stands at the end of the hallway. His face is imprinted with an indefinite scowl; war can do that sometimes. It’s hard to look at his face, so you bow your head down in humility but his shoes shine so brightly that it hurts. Mostly people just don’t look at the Major anymore, don ‘t pay him any mind. He, alone guards this corridor.

    Her every step ground shards on loss into his arm and her stiletto heels jabbed hols to let the pain seep in.

  • hailey rose commented on the post, use 7 years ago

    I use an old lead pencil from the back of my father’s drawer.I doodle less than loving notes in the back of a journal. It’s messy and my hand leaves a gray area on the college rule. I do not know whether the sunflowers danced or died on that summer’s breeze.
