speak

Jessie could do a lot of things. She could read, write, dance, play the trombone, make ice sculptures and paint. But what she could not do was speak. So when her dad fell down the stairs and snapped his back, she couldn’t even tell the 911 operator where to pick up the broken man who had made her.

fractures

I can’t count all the time’s that i’ve seen strangers fracture. They keep a smile on the outside, but their souls are ripping at the seams. They crack. Disintegrate. How can a person try to maintain themselves as whole when not one person has been able to do so?

Especially too-keen ones who stood in your doorway with a hood a trash bags.

mayor

The mayor was a large man, which contrasted sharply with his effeminate mannerisms. When he was first elected, the women of the town were proud. Such a strong man. Protecting their little town. But as time progressed, they grew disenchanted with his laxidasical approach to teen hooliganism.
