    I’m singing in the wrong key lately. I miss even vaguely being able to play the piano. I have car keys, but I left the house keys at home because the girls are home all day. Because I have the only car. I wish they’d stop leaving her on empty. .

    I’m really not miserable. I’m broke but I’m happy. She bought an Alanis Morrisette vinyl the other day and it skipped on the player, and she was so disappointed. This is the life, even if it aches a little.

    Northamtpon Brewery and Irish music. I have “She Moved Through the Fair” stuck in my hread already. I understand why Irish music is so metrical now, it helps you walk when you’ve had a pint.

    I’m spiraling out .I’ve already written on this word today. Whoops. This is a mess. She’s a mess but she’s beautiful. What do I do for her? Not again. Not this again.

    Tofu is something that I’ve never really, truly, tried. But it’s revered by foodies and health nuts and vegetarians everywhere and my dad would be prepared to show me how to cook it, so maybe I should…

    Why is she so sad? Tears well up in her eyes and I see her like a painting, all rich hues and highlights. The smile finally broke, I guess. Like porcelain. They do say the ones who smile most are the most broken inside.

    Chocolate. Choosing which dessert I want at the Chocolate Sparrow is always hard. Had tiramisu yesterday. I had an Italian boyfriend once who used to make fun of how I mispronounced that word apparently.

    Ugh. I wish he would pay attention to me instead of that goddamn computer all the time. This is why I’m banging someone else. Someone who knows what he’s doing, to boot. Poor thing has no idea, sitting in the glow of his computer screen like he has me back.

    We’re taking personality tests in Psychology class recently. Inkblots that look like trees and explosions and jack-o-lanterns to me look like entirely different things to someone else….

  • April commented on the post, standing 5 years, 6 months ago

    Standing, how long will I be standing on this cold tile floor? Three people still have to sing before I’m up and if I sit I may lose my place in line. I really want this role, what if they think I’ve given up? My feet ache….

    Child abuse, divorced parents use their young boy as leverage against each other, simple machines, trapped, that…episode of Friends where Joey and Ross get stuck on the roof…

  • April commented on the post, winged 6 years, 2 months ago

    Angels floating up into the sky. I guess they do exist, I mean, there she was with a halo and white wings floating up into the sky to who knows where. And there’s a phoenix with bright red plumage. They say the tears have healing powers. He soars in a wide arc and eclipses her face a moment. His wings beat once. I wish I could fly.

  • April commented on the post, bleeding 6 years, 3 months ago

    Why is the site no longer that pretty purple color. Blood doesn’t make me think of purple though. Red. Gushing. Wounds. Emotional pain. Car accidents. Spinning out of control on an icy road, he slammed into her passenger door…

  • April commented on the post, porter 6 years, 10 months ago

    Porter, I don’t know, I think of portly which means kinda stout and fat, or stocky, like George Costanza from Seinfeld. There’s also Port wine. A porter is someone you pay, but I never understood what they did.

  • April commented on the post, doorknob 6 years, 11 months ago

    I reached toward the brass doorknob on the bedroom door. There was no sound behind the door. Somehow, I was paranoid that the knob would be hot to the touch, as if there was nothing but flames on the other side.

    Detention. Headaches. The Breakfast Club. Sitting at a desk with nothing to do, your head drops and hits the hard wood laminate, bruising your forehead and waking you up.

  • April commented on the post, seeds 6 years, 11 months ago

    Seeds of plants growing, reaching toward the sunlight. Big, bright yellow sunflowers with dark faces turning their heads to soak in the sun. Vegetable gardens, snap peas…

  • April commented on the post, keen 6 years, 12 months ago

    Not particularly keen on being immobilized all summer, in a plastic boot cast and knee brace, watching endless hours of “Say Yes to the Dress”, trapped on the futon in my living room.
