    Starlight, starbirght, where is the words I need to write. My muse is asleep and the night is dark. Starlight, starbirght give me my words to write.

    Gestern saß ich da und schrieb. Schrieb und schrieb und schrieb und schrieb.
    Dann wollte ich alles Ausdrucken, aber mitten beim Ausführen des Auftrags streikte der Drucker, weil die Patrone leer war. Ihm war nicht die Puste, sondern der Toner ausgegangen. Ich musste so schnell zum Laden, um Nachschub zu holen, dass mir daraufhin die Puste ausging.

    “Hey, how are you today?”
    “Do we know each other?”
    “Aren’t you Mercy?”
    “Mercy? Is that even a name?”
    “Isn’t it?”
    “As far as I know, it isn’t.”
    “Oh. But … do we know each other?”
    “Lord, have mercy!”

    Don’t go.
    Be slow.
    Be flash.
    Humming electricity
    that’s thrumming on
    piggyback waves of a
    Strum drum trance
    Shooting constellations
    Into projections behind the eyes

  • Intuition commented on the post, studying 2 years, 7 months ago

    i’m studying the bond
    between the body and the spirit
    it’s a first hand experience
    to recognize the terror
    the widening of the eyes
    adrenaline fevers
    lullaby cleavers
    unsheathed in the night
    can you feel the sliver
    A glint of quivering light

  • Intuition commented on the post, answer 2 years, 8 months ago

    I think it’s interesting that depression’s sunk more than a few brilliant writers. To this murky end I think of Virginia Woolf. She wrote “To the Lighthouse” as a way to examine certain aspects of her parents. It’s not an autobiography as much as an exercise in memory and perception. Experimental literature is an attempt at art more so than an…[Read more]

  • Intuition commented on the post, weave 2 years, 8 months ago

    You know it’s been coming. Weaving in and out of traffic, like a kite in the air, no like a starling chased by the hawk. It’s on your heels. Anticipation. Tingles down your spine, cold sweat on your back. Reflect. In the rear view mirror it grins. Brandishes its scythe like an oncoming truck you didn’t see entering the intersection this time.

  • Intuition commented on the post, centered 2 years, 10 months ago

    The question centered on the tense. What context is this? Anxiety thrummed as the unknown spiraled out like great and vast universe. Galaxies rose and fell. In time there passed a countless dawn and an innumerable dusk. I cleared my throat and repeated what I’d said to another friend, “No. For all my time here I’ve never actually been to the HiLo.…[Read more]

    It comes to pass that I am lost in a river bed at sunset. I feel you in the mud and water seeping up my calves then rushing past my thighs. More than anything trying to keep me in this place by the time you reach my waist. “Don’t leave”, “Don’t go” – don’t ask me how I know. It’s not a nightmare but an irrational dream nonetheless. By the time the…[Read more]

    “To be continued…”

    She closed the book and leaned back against her seat. Is this really the end of such a delightful series that had followed her from childhood?

    The word mocked her even though the cover innocently winked at her.

  • Yuki commented on the post, apron 3 years ago

    “What is this?”
    Malik immediately threw down the offending picture of him in a frilly pink apron, drunkenly operating a pan over a stove.
    Casey snickered as he snatched up the picture. “It’s you, dude!”

    The timing of all our sways and kicks and jumps and pirouettes started out perfectly in tune. Lauren came in early with one step, and Beth, our new dance captain, gawked in horrified embarassment–she should have missed her split, but she remembered herself after a second and did it way too late, and Kayleigh tripped over her ankle, and one by…[Read more]

  • Intuition commented on the post, structure 3 years, 2 months ago

    One’s taking a shower
    Another’s wanting for a book
    One’s in the mirror defining a look
    This one’s on the bed strumming on the hour
    That one’s in the kitchen looking at a flower
    One’s soaking feet in a tub
    Another is writing on a wall
    One’s in the car like it’s a concert hall

  • Intuition commented on the post, sinking 3 years, 2 months ago

    I nip his ear. “Ow, you’re hurting me.” He doesn’t flinch and keeps reading the news on his phone. I nip at his neck. “Seriously, ow.” He doesn’t even bother to roll over on the bed to stop me. I nip my way down his arm before sinking my teeth into the side of his stomach. “Ow, I said you’re hurting me.” He still doesn’t put his phone down and…[Read more]

    The wife now sits back in bed reading a thick book on some subject the husband finds interesting, but tedious. He’ll get the cliff notes over coffee later. As it is she’s recently returned from picking up a new album and some last minute groceries for tomorrow’s breakfast. Her dark hair is pinned so that it frames her face and her makeup is still…[Read more]

  • Intuition commented on the post, dating 3 years, 2 months ago

    I watched her eyes narrow as her companion for the evening unsuccessfully attempted to blow smoke away from their table. The wind, hot and humid, would not comply tonight. I pitied her for there was no way to avoid the plumes that ghosted over her hair and through her clothes. I couldn’t discern if they were more than just friends. Her eyes said…[Read more]

    I look at the antenna and hope this works. *Please, let it be enough to amplify the signal.*

    “What did you say?” He looks at me strangely. His eyes fixate on my lips. I keep them pressed together firmly. This is how it must be. There is no other way to test the silence.

    *I’m a freak. Do you understand me now?*

    It dawns on him what I’m…[Read more]

  • Intuition commented on the post, clarify 3 years, 3 months ago

    The demon enters the room unceremoniously and an exponential warmth spreads over every surface: wood, glass, metal, stone, wool, cotton, silk, canvas, nothing is left untouched. I feel flush when she stops a foot in front of me. There in the depths of her pupils radiates an intensity, not hate, but something much more tender. I would ask her to…[Read more]
