lint

It’s in the air that passes between us: the lint, the words, the empty eyes, all of it in the open orbiting.

We’ll always be worlds apart. There’s nothing, not even glue, for people like me and you.

embellish

to give you everything of myself without the silly glitter. How I wish you wouldn’t drown me with your shit, the sticky mold that you think will help it all come together… to really make it come to life. I don’t wish to exaggerate anymore

trunk

Elephants have really long trunks. Or are they called noses? Is it the same thing? I mean, trunks are also that part of the car in the back that opens. But also swim trunks are things you wear to the pool or the ocean. I wish I could take a swim. It’s so hot here. Ugh. Trunks.

cactus

There are cacti in the desert
Many of them

In fact I think that if weren’t for the tiny cactus on my shelf I would say
that all cacti live in the desert

Where birds make their homes in their fleshy insides
And where Sokka drinks the wrong cactus’s juice

lightning

The white branch crackled across the dark sky. Clouds rumbled and twisted out of the bolt’s way as it streaked toward its wooden counterpart. The tree snapped as the bolt sent a shock down the trunk. With a whoosh, the tree was aflame.

ill

I’ve gotten too much sun recently, and the muscles in my arms are sore. The warm weather has gotten to my head and I feel ill. Perhaps I should get more sleep, or drink some more water. Maybe I should remember to put on sunscreen before leaving the house…

skeleton

Her skeleton will lie in the Chamber forever.

ticket

Ah, a ticket. Tickets to the circus are my favorite kind. No, no. My FAVORITE kind of ticket is that kind that doesn’t exist. Platform 9 3/4, anyone? I’d die if I ever got that ticket for real. Imagine the destinations you would reach. The journeys that would happen with just that one ticket…?

violent

I remember, once, my mother came home and started grading her fifth graders’ tests. When asked to name all the colors of the rainbow, some misspelled “violet” as “violent”.

funeral

Scared, and dark. Things are confusing. Crying. Laughing. Emotion swirling, wind blowing, falling down and down and down. Dark tunnel, light growing smaller. Where are the stars? No stars in the sky. Where is the moon. Only the black, empty fabric of space.

canteen

Her parched lips touched the warm metal spout of the canteen and she signed. There wasn’t even a drop of water that could be scrounged to ease her thirst.

torch

She carried the torch down the beach. The red flames flickered in the high wind. Heat radiated off the red and on her face. She smiled.

booth

Booth, from Bones. Booth, Superman becoming himself from Clark Kent. Booth, those 3D glasses you get in the movie theater. The 1920’s, the Tommy hun, black and white and sepia tones, Cigar smoke in a saloon room. Booth.

pretzel

Hmm, pretzel. Or should I say, “Mmm”! The twisted rolls of dough… I’ve never made pretzels, you know. That’s something I should do. What did they originate as? Prayer rewards? They are delicious.

thief

Like a thief in the night darkness will find you. The Book Thief by Cornelia Funke. That song that Rasputin sings in Fox’s ‘Anastasia’. Thievery Plagiarism. Stolen bread that isn’t really stolen but still. The Boy With The Bread.

wrath

A violent word that brings about a tired sigh. I don’t like the implications of this word. The red sky filled with flame and hate, where the only red light shines from a tower because the sun hasn’t been seen in years. The only other color is black, like the charred buildings and cars and people. All because one person was angry enough to take revenge on people he had never met.

domestic

Horses, cats, dogs, animals, barns, farms, domestic, calm, manners, self-control, repectful, tied-down, restricted, smothered, homely, lovely, altogether DOMESTIC in the domestic sense of the word. Maybe. You get this? I don’t.

mole

Mole? Wow. Like the animal or the face mark? I thought of a combination of the creature on the face but then that would be silly because moles live underground. Okay, okay, I understand that the very idea is silly. I apologize. Well— wait, what? My time’s up?

tempted

Funny, how I pulled up tempted one oneword just as I promised myself that I would accomplish this writing exercise, treat myself to something that’s been nagging at me since I got home mere minutes ago, and then move on to 750words. I was tempted to skip the two of these, but I knew I would never get back to them…

curious

The curious thing about things is circuses. Not in the cheery nostalgic way but in the sense that that old menagerie and rustic feel of the freak-shows were in of itself curious. The Curious Circus, the Queerest of All and the Normal-est of None.

forgotten

The girl looked behind her, into the mist. She couldn’t see the Starline that well. The faint outline of the old bungalow was nearly out of sight. She couldn’t see the man on the porch who waved good-bye. Already, true to his word, Starline Hollow looked like a forgotten city.

vodka

He tipped back the glass and let the clear liquid pour out onto the counter. The girl next to him raised her eyebrows, drowning whatever she was about to say in her own glass of an orange-tinted martini. “Vodka,” he said to no one in particular. “Vodka is the stuff for filthy counter tops.”
