ABE if you don’t stop reading this instantly!!!!
“Look,” Dad began as he stood in my door fame with one hand on hip, top two buttons of his button-up sighing a breath of relief, signaling a day’s end. “When I turn the lights off, what’s any different?” He stood quiet, patient, and slightly smirking. I sat up a little straighter. Loosed my grip […]
I think I know We play denial, These dragging hours Dripped Soaked Splattered Silenced In the insincere. Posts that saturate my phone screen, Illuminating my eyes, Full of both fire and water, With a loud Purple and blue light Contrasted with The darkness Of my 2 AM portrait. I asked myself If they’re intentionally armed […]
I’ve left Earth in search of a solution, a solar system promising testimonies and remedies and success stories. I’ve left in search of universal interest. I’m not certain that this term is in our lexicon. My grandmother’s garden is only outdone by the bees sidetrack, death racked, throwing in the towel. Take your trendy hashtag […]

When the silver clouds head home And the pastel sky packs up. That’s when your eyes linger To the still waters beside you. That’s […]
Barely eighteen. Overflowing my sedan with the essentials. The belongings I prize most. The ones reminiscent, symbolic of home. The certain warmth and scents I never want to strip myself of. Little bird leaves the nest. Clear eyes full of wonder, lifted head full of ideas. I was never meant to stay in one place. […]
Stumbling out of bed. Into the spotlight of delicate white beams seeping through windows, through blinds, through construction paper pale skin, through cracked violet eyelids. You stand before your audience in a sooty apartment mirror. Eye contact. Reciting your mission statements internally like clockwork becoming framework. This makes you feel alive. Feel human. Feel right. […]
