    I guess the first image is of a ginger and white dog, expressive but far-off expression, right front leg raised, tail erect. Magestic?

  • sharon commented on the post, erase 2 years, 6 months ago

    Remember, during recess, the erasers, thwak thwak thwak thwaaaack. Against the west wall of our school, white chalky streaks, the feel of the gritty felt-side, the smooth camel colored chamois? The honor of inhaling all that dust and the 5 minutes of being outside alone. Without supervision, without anyone.

    I hate books about witches and magical, mystical forests, cauldrons and cackling. Feminism gone bad.

  • sharon commented on the post, beyond 4 years, 6 months ago

    Beyond all hope and expectations, beyond our fears and walls of doubt, beyond these and more, we have the roar, the suspicious roar.

  • sharon commented on the post, polo 4 years, 6 months ago

    I can’t think of anything to say about this word – I hate the sport, never cared for the candy, I don’t wear name brands or covet this line of clothing (waspy, boring, flat) – oops, my time’s up.

    In the middle, a grand divider built of cement and steel, columns and bricks and covered, I mean completely covered in… Well, you needed to see it to believe it.

    Her headband kept slipping back – the tiny teeth had broken off years ago – to reveal grey, oily roots and scaly hairline psoriasis.

    Sibling rivalry is the theme of fairy tales, but it’s also the root of success, discovery, ambition and happiness.

    Starlit starlet, satire stairlift, start life straight

  • sharon commented on the post, taffy 5 years, 4 months ago

    I think of pastel blue and rosebud pink, colors for a newborn. Sticky, stretchy, awful sugar rush. And I think of you: sandals in hand, chapped lips and squinting at the sea. Photo album memories.

  • sharon commented on the post, counted 5 years, 5 months ago

    Just one minute. I’ve counted how long it takes. It takes exactly one minute. Or so. Actually, I might be wrong. But the last time I counted, the last three times, in fact, it took about a minute. I think.

  • sharon commented on the post, trooper 5 years, 5 months ago

    You’re a trooper, you really are. I know how much you hate it here and how you’d prefer to be with your Anna. But it means a lot to us that you showed up, it does. Stay awhile, won’t you?

  • sharon commented on the post, celebrity 5 years, 6 months ago

    I wanted to be a celebrity when I was younger. But not the celebrity of today – with their non-stop exposure, silly social media quips, awkward sexual trysts. I wanted glamour, respect, beauty; I wanted to be an “honest celebrity”.

  • sharon commented on the post, derailed 5 years, 6 months ago

    The plan’s been derailed, well, more like changed. We aren’t going. Not going. So, do whatever you have to do, make some calls, cancel the tickets. I can’t say I’m sorry.

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

    Standing in the rain, with the biting wind stinging her cheeks and the smell of her soggy wool sweater making her nauseous, Alice decided that Enough Is Enough and Really, It’s Time to Move On.

    Wreath, wealth, want, stealth, wrung, wrong, right, rite. Wreath.

  • sharon commented on the post, entirety 5 years, 6 months ago

    “Ships in its entirety!” What a strange description – as if the parts could be delivered separately, as if anyone could possibly assemble the thing to begin with.
