  • joshuapaul commented on the post, pins 7 years, 7 months ago

    I’ve always been one to poke pins in things. you’d think it would deflate the problem but instead it only becomes infected and swells up, turns a bright red. not just bright but a deep red, like looking at your […]

    “Do a kickflip!” some kid skateboarding in the parking lot, harassed by another trying to be funny. there was a girl somewhere whom someone was making a silly but wholehearted attempt to impress. I was on my way […]

    a rainy day is
    always a chance to
    read a good book of
    poetry and quips,
    clever little things.
    Bukowski or Poe or
    Whoever you like.

    without warning I was shown a picture of a puppy playing with a blonde haired blue eyed boy in the summer and a certain idea makes a little more sense. water from the sprinkler cooled his face and his red striped […]

    I’ve never known a man who knew where he was going and wasn’t lying about it. face it, man, you’re as lost as the rest of us. you’re dragging your feet through your stressful job so you can pay for food and a […]

    grapefruit fresh off the tree. a ripe peach. her round buttocks in jeans. my hard cock you can see through mine, if that’s what you’re looking for. Van Goh for some, Bach for others and some of the same. Dali, […]

    in the trunk of my car I have some jumper cables, a couple tools, and some other assorted items. I don’t remember the last time I opened it. I do remember, however faintly, the hood. when it was new. not so much […]

    everyone is fixing something. some things don’t need to be fixed. we see them with our flawed vision and they look dirty so we wipe ’em down with filthy rags. try sitting down with yourself. silence and an empty […]

    Rated ‘R’ for violence, sex and foul language. Rated ‘R’ because we want you to be wary of whether or not you should see it. because we don’t want your kids to see it. because we think it will be popular with the […]

    I’m always the last one to the party. groups and pairs have already been formed and I make my way to the back patio for a smoke. girls herd around the good looks and button up shirts with a bottle of Mike’s Hard […]

    Passing the torch. Blowing out the torch. Dipping the torch in water and stirring it around. wiping the ashes off on her shirt. “Cut it out!” She giggled like she used to do all the time. Made me want to pin her […]

  • joshuapaul commented on the post, staple 7 years, 8 months ago

    pastel colors coat the walls of my bedroom. in the summer they drip and paint the floor. I can’t image a world without colors like these or further, what world these colors came from. I like to think I took part […]
