• Susannah commented on the post, stray 9 months, 2 weeks ago

    I am such a suckeker for stray animals. I used to live on the reservation, and I ended up with an extra dog–chowder–because she was a chow…der… She ran after my car when i would leave the res, and so she would end up spending the whole day, happily hanging out while I ran my errands.

  • Susannah commented on the post, holistic 9 months, 3 weeks ago

    holistic medicine is death to me.
    I can not even drink chai tea
    Coffee once a day is fine
    but one bit of fennel is unkind
    my body is not my own today
    while I am sharing I don’t get my way

  • Susannah commented on the post, motor 1 year, 8 months ago

    Get my motor going. I pulled, tug-tug-tug… dead. Pull! tug-tug-tug…dead.
    What is wrong with this thing? Is the blade too high? am I pushing it too hard? Gas…maybe it’s out of gas! But what kind of gas? Where do I get gas?

    Champagne, Illinois is the home of deep thinkers and middle america. How would Ebert feel…to know…they voted for Trump?

  • Susannah commented on the post, wintertime 4 years, 1 month ago

    Wintertime in New York is unlike other places. Soon falls and gives hope, which gives hope to disappointment as it falls and disintegrates into the concrete, warmed by the life-force of the city streets. wintertime is cold, soulless, lit up and dressed as a lie of warmth and love.

  • Susannah commented on the post, headband 4 years, 2 months ago

    I slipped the card into the slot of the headband waiting at my forehead and I began to ask questions. Is it living? an animal? a food? What color is it? Can I take it out in public? Is it something I can wear? I know! It’s a Chicken!

  • Susannah commented on the post, headband 4 years, 2 months ago

    the headband dug into that space just above and being my ears, clashing unmeldingly against the stems of my green Korean glasses. the tiny spikes of the band dug menacingly into my scalp, leaving its mark on my skull only as a disquieting memory.

  • Susannah commented on the post, fort 4 years, 2 months ago

    I ate thanksgiving leftovers in a fort.
    It had a treehouse and funny rules, “You talkin’ to me?”
    a few new friends, fried potatoes, and a SMART Car.

    The emperor looked out over his wide kingdom. He saw that it was glorious. He marveled at its gloriouis potential. Then he burst into wailing fits of tears because it was time for bed.

  • Susannah commented on the post, demonstrate 5 years ago

    How do I best demonstrate the way to write to a bunch of kids who have little to no practice? Ah…sigh…sometimes I worry that I’m not doing enough for them…sometimes I wish I had a road map. But, as they say, there is no road map for kids…besides, everyone just uses their phones these days anyway.

  • Susannah commented on the post, starlit 5 years ago

    How can one NOT think about romance on a starlit night? Well, the idea of a starlit night is romantic. The reality of the starlit night is not so dreamy when the weather is F below zero and traffic is whizzing being your back. The sand is everywhere and I feel like the oysters we had for dinner might be making an encore performance.

  • Susannah commented on the post, doubled 5 years ago

    I doubled the gum I was chewing in my mouth. The dull, elastic taste suddenly brightened momentarily, like a burst of juicy goodness that faded as quickly as it came.

  • Susannah commented on the post, apprehend 5 years ago

    his only job was to apprehend criminals, but he was a terrible cop. He foiled his own cases constantly. He tripped on his own feet; he stumbled on to evidence. He was, essentially, a bumbler.

  • Susannah commented on the post, taffy 5 years ago

    Taffy was my blue parakeet. He flew around the room in our high- valuted cielings and perched on the paintings, pooping all over Jesus’s head. Oh, Taffy. You brightly moving aquamarine sunbeam!

  • Susannah commented on the post, swell 6 years ago

    After a night of tequlia with heavy-set Richard, the last place I wanted to be was on a boat, the heavy swells of the sea, rocking us back and forth, violently ripping my stomach lining from its resting spot,daring me to to hurl my breakfast across the roof of the boat.

  • Susannah commented on the post, swell 6 years ago

    All-swell that end-swell, but in the end, it was mostly unwell.
    She was falling apart. Quickly. her hair was falling out. She crumbled under her weight when trying to walk. Indeed, all was not s’well.

  • Susannah commented on the post, must 6 years, 1 month ago

    I must focus on myself if I am to be responsible for others. IF I allow my health to fail, then I cripple, and I can take care of nothing. I must be more strict, clear, and concise. No more concessions. I must, or else I fail.

  • Susannah commented on the post, want 6 years, 6 months ago

    Wanting is an urge, a push. I am I pushing it, or is it pushing me? Which, in this situation, is preferable. I work on what I want, and fear what will happen if I get it.

  • I’m high at work right now.
    I couldn’t care less about the configuration of this or that. I’ve never been high at work. or most anywhere except the few times I’ve smoked weed. Vicoden is somehow different, […]

  • Susannah commented on the post, pits 6 years, 8 months ago

    armpits. the pits of despair. the pits of hard work and determination.
    the pits of desire.
    be proud of that stench, and sometimes, remember to take a shower.
