Nosebleed

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2018

When I was twelve, I had my first ever nosebleed, the bodily function that has plagued my life for four long years. 

I was in my mom’s car, on my way to my grandparent’s house, when I felt a flowing sensation in my nose. Thinking my nose was just runny, I wiped it with my hand, not caring if I mucus on my hand. Instead of the clear liquid on my hand, it was a dark crimson, the color of...

The Center Cannot Hold

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2018

The doorbell chimes as I enter YoYo’s donuts. The sound meanders through my mind until it morphs into the incessant beeping of the x-ray machine.

I fill up my lungs and strain to stand up as straight as I can, slowly becoming lightheaded as I wait for the x-ray to process. The muscles in my back ache and I imagine the waves of electromagnetic radiation circulating through my body.
Eventually, I will endure so many x-rays that I joke...

    She slipped in the sand, and
the box she was carrying almost tumbled out of
her hands. Digging
her fingers firmly
into the grooves of wooden vines on its cover, she tramped
down the beach
toward the waiting water,
going by ear.
The lapping waves were
oil in
her ears and perfume on
her lips as the wind kissed her
hello. She sat
in the flat sand. Water seeped
into her thin athletic shorts. She rested the box...

FREE WRITING

fig. 1:
girl in pearls & grey tattered tee. asymmetrical and uncomfortable. behind her, fairy lights begin to tango,
she sees no end to dawns.

fig 2:
girl in oily mattress. she is awake, the lights are on because the sun is unbound, but the rope stretches thin.

fig 3:
girl fingering elbows. hair braided in thrashes, hair brushed in sound photons, the curls breathing.

fig 4:

i glanced down as i toweled droplets from my legs
i saw the droplet on the crack between tiles

is releasing its treasures through the birth of nothing alive

that every persephone learns to dance across vibrational planes

The Internet Subculture That Saved my Life

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2018

In seventh grade, I idolized my classmate Mina. She was beautiful, sarcastic, and religiously followed bands the rest of us had never heard of. After I downloaded the social network Instagram for the first time, she was one of the first people I followed. This dropped me into a world I was completely unprepared for.

Mina had anxiety and depression, and was open about it online. She was part of an online community of mental illness sufferers, and seeing things...

Playing to Win: The Message of Crazy Rich Asians

PROMPT: Open Prompt

    I wanna preface this by acknowledging that Crazy Rich Asians is not a representation of all Asian ethnicities. Its cast and highlighted culture is majority East Asian — even though it is set in Singapore — and particularly megawealthy Chinese. As an American child of a Chinese immigrant parent, this movie resonated powerfully with me, but it’s worth noting that Crazy Rich Asians is not a universal expression of Pan-Asian culture and should not be reviewed as such.

Beyond Three Strikes

PROMPT: Personal Narrative Competition 2018

I open the door, take a step outside, turn back inside, and run back into my room.
This was my story for a year before I solved me.
I wasn't always like that. I was fun, bubbly and happy.
I moved.
Not 'we' mind you, but 'I'.
I went to another place, no, country, continent even, and left the rest of me behind.
My story may not seem dire at all,as I merely left the comfort of home - Nigeria...
