Don’t Look Back

Don’t Look Back

To the press-drop coffee machine on the top floor, to the garbage man alone at home, to the faux leather couch on the side of the road, to the neo-theory student banded waist-high on a map that can’t lead her home,   to the bra straps broken and bent, the fathers who don’t know their […]

Shakespeare

Shakespeare

the earliest memory I have of god is of a pastor who was saying how his friend told him “the bible, thank you, is a great piece of literature” and so the pastor thwarted him in his prayers because literature was not enough.   in the nights after, I became angry at god and damned […]

Shells

Shells

This place is simply used. Like a shell, our cosmic bastion has run dry of the things we need to survive. The future we feared is present and simultaneously future as well. It seems a disgrace that we could call such a place home.     Strewn about, there are hollowed shells of bullets and […]

Witch of Newdath

Witch of Newdath

First week in Newdath and standing in line at the Mini-Discount. I can afford two bowls of instant noodles, I have change for three, but tax here is unnatural. This guy, something particularly broken in his bobble-eyed stare, keeps cutting in front of me and asking about a Briny’s Brand canned fish that was in […]

The heads of secrets that could not keep. You can count them twice but you’ll only need to count them once, […]

Pablo’s Prayer

Pablo’s Prayer

My father was a thesaurus and my mother a dictionary. I spilled from their pages with all their words and the words of my ancestors in an inky black soup of memory and meaning, most of which I still don’t understand. She: Words have specific definition and structure, black and white. There are rules which […]

The Time to Die

The Time to Die

It is found in the dim light of five a.m. that men make shields out of starving oak. That boxes marked “fragile” remain unpacked. That clouds move seamlessly through hilltops and groves of orange trees and don’t ever, ever stop. It is found that I am not yet dead, pray no man test. For I […]

Hell is White

Hell is White

No neo-golden disguises here, you know this much. You’re silverish. If these were such sweet crimes, nobody could see it entirely. Creeping centrifuge robbery, ‘round every corner here or there. Sticks bundled with twine inside lockets intended to keep even the toughest men held tight. You check in, providing solitude, peddling course veins grown-old of […]

Love

They said nobody can love you like god can love you but how can someone know what love is if it can only be above you I think I seen it today coming in different ways I don’t think it offends god when I say I think I seen something like it when these people […]
