Time’s Iris

Time swiftly navigated the cold tile floor of the room they called mine and positioned himself at the side of the bed that was assigned to me.  He adjusted his oval reading glasses and from his hip revealed a pen.  With a click of the hammer, Time readied his instrument and prepared for notetaking on […]

I am Christmas Morning

I sign another line.  This time, I do not think about the hoops and swirls and dots. I don’t stop to break a stroke. My hand is stable and my eyes are dry. I flip the paper. I sign another line… …It was a long time ago.  When I was young, younger than you are […]

Between Men

I listen as he talks. His hands move in sync with his mouth.  His fingers and his voice dance together in perfect modulation.  His wavelength is hypnotic and while he is not talking to me directly, I am transfixed enough to forget temporarily that he has trained himself to perform this wonderful manipulation, “Diane claimed our program […]

Forever Alone?

So, here I am again….let my guard down and started to let someone in and they backed out. This time was three months. Sometimes it’s less than that, sometimes it’s a little longer, but not by much. I’m tired. Tired of pretending that it doesn’t matter. That the next Mr. Right Now is around the […]

Hey Big Spoon

Hey Big Spoon, I want you to know that I would be your Little Spoon.  I would kiss your hands, your cheaks and your nose.  I would kiss each eye, forevermore.  And hey Big Spoon, I know you have things to do.  Agendas and plans and places to conquer.  Titles and people.  Roles and ideas. […]

Three Ghosts

I went back in time to the house I built, and the house he built.  He said we built it together.  I knew we built it separately.  I went back in time to find reason and validity.  I searched for slugs in the cracks of it’s foundation.  I found nothing but salt in these wounds, […]

Oh Snap

Oh Snapchat The King and Queen of ghosting;  you had me at… Whoa, this filter is like my own personal airbrush artist.  It does for nudes what spanks did for dieters AND it adds at least five hypothetical hours onto my sleep cycle.  Fucking amazing. Hold up.  It’s a flower crown.  Ever since I was […]
