territory

stake out a place for yourself amidst all this hostile territory. share it with those who have nowhere else to go. guard it– and them– with your life, if you have to.

stunts

executives

a board of executives sits around a long table. the table’s mahogany. it’s very long. it has a nice grain, mr. jones says. mr. jones has said this many times. the other executives nod and murmur in agreement. a very nice grain indeed, mr. jones says.
there is a moment of silence. no one is quite sure what they were going to say. the fluorescent lights overhead buzz too loudly. maybe the lights are due for a changing, mr. johnson says. LED lights are better for the environment anyway, he says. a few of the other executives nod and murmur in agreement. mr. johnson feels validated in his opinion.

startled

–but before i could truly process what i was seeing, the thing recoiled at my gaze and skittered away, squeezing itself impossibly through the gap between the door and frame.

weave

i wove my fingers through theirs and held on tight, as if that could prevent the strained and desperate bond between us from fraying.

weave the threads back together as best you can. they’re frayed and fragile, but they’re all you have. be gentle.

you can’t make your home on the edge of indecision.

it’s a binary choice: the barren earth behind you or the endless fall ahead

a tugging in your chest, a bone-deep impulse, a magnetic urge to abandon the solid steady earth beneath your feet and yield to gravity’s will
