On The Passing of A Warrior.

There was a moment today, where I panicked.  See, Erica Garner has just passed away, and as people wished me a Happy New Year, I found a special, strange (projected?) sort of callousness in their gazes.

Recycled Waste

The grease thickened cooling even as it found purchase between myself and my heated gaze. My reflection seemed as angry as I, but at what, she could not say. My scalp is pouring into the sweet decay of early morning. "Stay," it gurgles, and my thighs stick together to prevent me from leaving I can… Continue reading Recycled Waste

Fishing for Nothing in Particular

The moon pulls me into a watery swell dipping her pointed crescent and twisting it for good measure. Where there once was question and answer, good and evil, now rests the weight of my heart.

On Why Love Won’t “Trump” Hate

So I have been pretty sick over the last three days.  Not just coughing and runny nose.  Nah, I'm talking high-grade fever that wouldn't let up.  I knew there was something wrong with me, something "abnormal" wrong.  This wasn't the kind of sickness that seemed like I could just throw it off. I felt like… Continue reading On Why Love Won’t “Trump” Hate
