    Beneath; under the – -s, she’s with him breathing: in tandem? It’s hard to tell between the shift of sheets and the taste of morning breath. It’s about time to wake up, but they’re still ——-, hidden […]

    You hear it in the tinny ring of muted trumpets, in a dark corner of a darker bar, as her voice rings out over the rumble of distant conversation. Here, you are home. She’s got a microphone, everything smells like […]

    They say there are many ways to generate conflict in a work. Man vs. nature, man vs. man, man vs. time… How about the inner self? Man vs. self, they say. -Human- versus self. There’s a wall constructed somewhere […]

    There’s a hunger inside of her, and when he buys her ice cream, it’s not enough. She sits and rubs her belly and whispers something — something, because what remains is the other ____. He focusses on success and […]

    Oh no. I’m sorry if I smothered you. They told me the other day that people have these things — sometimes people wish for them, too — and they told me that I didn’t really understand, and that I was suffocating […]

    We have them, did you know that?

    They dangle from her wrist, thin, stork-like; a liquid grace about them. They jingle when she speaks. She speaks and they jingle. It is an extension of her, something catching your eye and keeping you fixated, her […]

    In the rye.

    I never read that book, you know? Somebody small, somebody pitiful, somebody hateful. I missed out on that, but I guess I’ve still got my chance. Reminds me of his greatest regret. He was so […]

    A place you need to be, right now, meandering in and out of the limbo that is half-sleep. Autumn light streams through translucent, almost sheer cloth, a remnant blue of summer. There are creatures in the dark, […]

    That’s something I have a hell of a lot of. I was just talking about this, just mentioning it to somebody. My mother, the crazy bitch (in a good way), my grandmother, the crazy bitch (in a bad way), and my great […]
