    She wants to be something else. Two knuckles deep into the peanuts of someone else’s life. She wants to shine like the glitter on Hollywood signs. She wants to blow kisses into the open mouth of twilight’s sky, eyes wide, heart full of candy wishes.

    She’s still from the same old everyday. A new position would be fitting. A new horizon, inspiring. She muses that life was never meant to be lived in the same spot. So many highways to choose from. So much fuss with indecision. And so she sits atop her dreams. Conjures new skies inside her mind. Wishes for that train ticket, settles for the demise.

    Someone is always in a hurry, and you can’t help but wonder where they are going. What’s more important than taking the time to look both ways before crossing a busy city street near an intersection where the light’s gone bad? What could mean more than taking a moment to scour the sky for black birds wing, a stiff contrast to the magenta…[Read more]

  • SarahsGurl commented on the post, vehicle 12 months ago

    Because there’s always room for one more, you flip your coin, cash your ticket, check your bags and tip the cab. And because there’s something forlorn about rolling the flesh of yourself atop four wheels across barren city side strips you’ve never been before, tipsy of cheap bar wine and craving the feel of soft carpeted hotel rooms. The…[Read more]

    He lights a cigarette, takes his place in line. The lyrics are written across his wrist, almost like an old tattoo, resurrecting, except perspiration is scrambling his vowels and there’s no time left for rearranging words. His story is his song and he’s not sure if this is the way entertaining is done but this club is a cash and he wants to…[Read more]

  • SarahsGurl commented on the post, disregard 1 year, 1 month ago

    Nevermind the explanation left in letters. Nor the enunciation of some random word mispelled. Or the lines around one’s eyes, made deeper by the mar of sadness. Or maybe it was laughter. You can’t see what you don’t look for. Likewise, when it comes to matters of disregard, you’ll always find what you want to see. Such is the unwritten law…[Read more]

    “Typical”

    Opposite of the girl with the bright umbrella, handle poised across its handle like the stem of a flower she swirls between drops of rain, their substance more like dew or a delicate drizzle. Her waiflike figure spins in and out of traffic, bright bobby socks light as air between her steps. She looks like no one else on the street,…[Read more]

    “Classified”

    Contained on the last page of a newspaper, or maybe the back flipside of a magazine cover. The too-small type with promises you can’t quite read, you just drop your check in the mail and await the surprise miracle. Perhaps its someone’s lonesome reverie: single white female with a love for vintage decor and cats, marriage comes…[Read more]

    “Regulation”

    The idea of order. A routine. Almost in the way that night follows day, a circle that doesn’t come undone. Except, perhaps someone, somewhere, steps out of line in ways the sky can’t. How the moon momentarily jumps beneath the blanket-cover of cloud at sunset and you wonder whether or not the sun has gone.

  • SarahsGurl commented on the post, emblem 1 year, 3 months ago

    “Emblem”

    Something that signifies something else, not to be forgotten. Perhaps the sentimental appeal of an old movie ticket, or the receipt for a bottle of wine drank at a celebration you cannot fully recall. Maybe it’s something as deeply keen as your grandmother’s ancient engagement ring. Whatever the appeal, you pack items away in boxes…[Read more]

    “Spotlight”

    To know that even when you are all alone, you are not alone. That block of light in the window has eyes. Empty streets are iluminated with invisible stares. And, always, the stars are watching from the Gondola seat of the nearest moon beam.

    “Deserted”

    After so many days of living inside the dark, you learn to console yourself. Kiss the upturned palms of your own hands. Bow a namaste into the morning of an empty room. Bend with the wind of destiny like a yogini, and begin again.

  • SarahsGurl commented on the post, deserted 1 year, 3 months ago

    “Deserted”

    An oasis. Spirit-longing. The sight outside an open window that begs your feet to follow. It’s the cough caught between the treetops where sparrows gather, mid-winter. The candle-flicker between clock ticks that whisper to your heart, that piece of moon beneath your breast bone.

  • SarahsGurl commented on the post, baggage 1 year, 4 months ago

    An antidote for freedom. It’s all the things you carry inside invisible knappy sacks, bursting at the inseams and ready to tumble it’s words into whatever cup you’ve currently pressed against your lilps. The inertia of a sigh caught in between a memory. The streetlight outside your window that blinks profusely when you awake from slumber, still…[Read more]
