    The building was covered in vines, which alone stirred a sense of romanticism in him. Unfortunately, the macabre broken windows, demolished blinds, and candy bar wrappers stirringly set him back to reality. It set […]

    A side of the box peeked out from the bookcase, it’s lid filmed over with dust. I went on to not sleeping that night. The box seemed to aurally resonate in the darkness, filling my stomach with all sorts of […]

    The bells and whistles clanked and called. He felt his heart thudding to death like a bat trapped in a box. A sheen of sweat glistened on his forehead, possibly reflecting Rebecca’s paled face as they neared the […]

    The old woman on the bus stop had hair like a misty fog or white smoke. What burned so that the smoke became white? I pondered this as I smoked, thereby singeing the tail of her winter coat. The next time I saw […]

    The morning air had seeped into my lungs. I was sure of it. There were electric static in all my nerves (or was it nerve endings?). I must have trembled through breakfast. The hillsides were misty and my head felt […]

    Back then, we had ran out of the hotel to a quiet morning. Our little legs twisted and pounded like excited, startled animals before we paused. We were staring into the fog as it grew. I felt my vision disappear, […]

    Vein pulsed as he stretched. His arms folded in and wrapped around his sides, two hands setting traps for the tendons of his shoulder blades. He pulled them back out again. I could imagine the noise they made, […]

    So many striped sweaters in her wardrobe! As he climbed in, he felt more and more like a convict. The rustling of his birthday suit and hangers and swear words soon faded out as her husband entered the bedroom…

    The leaf snuck into his bag that fall, just after he fell he fell off his bike. It crumble as he slipped and slid his notebooks out of it’s abyss; it faded as he smashed the bag to the floor in haste. It […]

    He called the first night, then the second, then the tenth… It was always three times throughout the day, and then twice by nightfall, before ten. She wondered, later in life, how she had reacted to his first […]

    She brayed out his name and the crowd turned their one-something heads. The faces intermingled, her vision dimmed. She called again and that mess of heads swarmed her, hovering like ghostly vultures. His little […]

    He hefted the dark mass onto his shovel and lunged back into the heat of the furnace. The pile of charcoal never seemed to diminish, his dreams (bubbling throughout the day under the labor) never seemed to set to […]

    Their lips and teeth clacked like ice cubes in a clammy glass. He piled her shirt on top of her shorts and seemed to melt the rest off her bones. Then, once, she was disassembled they stared at each other. She shivered.

  • jess tv commented on the post, disregard 6 years, 9 months ago

    He disregarded the “CAUTION” warning sign, following his shadows instead. His thoughts flickered with the lantern, red hot. Was it rage or embarrassment that haunted him that last moment before he fell?

    hand over the button. his hand, body hovered for the while she sat there. there was a stain of tears that sealed her eyelashes to her lid. they kept her statue still, watching the subtle tremble of his fingers. then he left. that was when she felt her lungs move again.

  • jess tv commented on the post, ant 7 years, 5 months ago

    crumbs like ants sprinkled your cotton cartoon t-shirt. i wondered how my aunt could have possibly given birth to something so naive and happy, simple and sweet. she sends you kisses from behind bars. she’s sorry for the bad dreams and the absent, helpless look in my eyes when you ask where your daddy went.

    topaz ring and long red fingernails. the secretary knew everyone that came in and everyone that left. she knew the hot gossip and celebrity buzz and infidelity secrets. the kid with the mail and headphones bothered her. so did the mousy girls with their glasses and the men too busy to flash a “morning darling.” […]

  • jess tv commented on the post, destruction 7 years, 6 months ago

    your shy, sheepish smile impressed me.
    you looming over me in a dark crowd,
    jokes but serious annoyance: too many people
    too much pressure.
    the strangers made you and me.
    it was destruction, right?
    that pressing us together made
    no pearl, no diamond.
    you smiled, opaque.
    i charcoal, smudging to amuse myself.
