I Become a Street Sign

FREE WRITING

Riley did not want to get up. It was just any other school day, but school in itself was a draining thought. Ugh. Last night’s conversation replayed in Riley’s head. No matter how many times she protested, she may as well have been talking to a brick wall. Riley’s Mum was set on taking her shopping. Not any other day, it had to be today. The day the sequel of her favourite novel was being released. 

Apart from the fact...

heatstroke

FREE WRITING



what is silence if not shreds of war dripping down throats? in summers
the boulder swells, fast gulps feasting on all the blood that is in sight
of it. I am no more alive than a door, a clamshell, the clasp on
a blackened necklace; objects that shut with the steadfastness of
a bruised mouth. I knew the void before
I knew my name, and I knew it in the way
it knocked on every door asking for alms, arms, the...

"What the..." She stared at her reflection, smearing away droplets from the mirror. it was the same old reflection; brown skin, a smattering of freckles that vaguely resembled Ursa major, same brown eyes, and short, dark brown hair. Except there was a rather bright strip of hair that was purple.

Harla stroked her fingers through the purple strands, frowning. She hadn't dyed her hair. She hadn't put anything on her hair except water and shampoo! Where on Earth could this...

You were looking like Cinderella sitting in that room

FREE WRITING

Elegance was thawing off your epidermis,
so I collected it in a pot to produce an elixir.
Illumination giving birth to murk, veiled your eyes.
Grey-ish tussore housed your naked body.
You have lips as if a white rose dipped in blood,
hair as black as the night that went awry, once.
With those silky lips of yours, you told a tale, 'My moon is messed up, and stars disturbed.' Permit me to align them.
Be cautious darling! beauty...

I saw time move on as I did not

  • I can barely go outside anymore.
    • You closed the door like that.
      • You walked like that.
        • You breathed like that
And you are gone like that

FREE WRITING

Carrying a girl of her condition was extremely dangerous. But they had no choice. Josie was barely breathing.

"Careful! You don't want to break it further, Quorin." Aulette made sure not to snap at the youngest boy.

"But, Madame Aulette," Fern defended Quorin. "We'll never make it at this rate. The sun's going to set and we're only halfway there..."

"...and then, Doctor Agape is going to leave," ---between pants, Fern's elder brother, Melvis, continued--- "and then she'll take...

Doomer - A Spoken Word

FREE WRITING

the words you spit out of your mouth
they're nothing profound
millions of angsty teens
have had the same fricking frown
aww, peer pressure got you down
seeing the world transparently
makes you feel like you're drowning
the whole worldview you created
you find yourself doubting
all frameworks and all authority
injustice makes you angry
your blood boils 
and then you remember
you have no choice
powerless, we consume untruth
and think self awareness
prepares us for doomsday
with the...

    On my right he stood, snow white hair plastered to his forehead by the rain. Those honey colored eyes of his pleaded with me as he stumbled forward, hands grasping my upper arms, begging me not to go. Begging me to think about what I’m doing. A little ways down the trail, going dangerously close to the tree-line, was his brother. With the same tall, lean build as Quinn, Blaine could have been identical if not for his black hair....

Hitler, But Funny: Jojo Rabbit Makes the Grade— Narrowly

PROMPT: Film/TV Series Review Competition 2021

There’s something both magnificent and disappointing about director Taika Waititi using his Hollywood renown to create another white-child-survives-the-Holocaust film. Riding a career high after the successes of Thor: Ragnarok and Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Waititi took the stencil for World War II films and added humour to form the Academy-Award-winning Jojo Rabbit.

While the 2019 film buys into the terrified Jew, moustached German and hidden attic clichés of Nazi narratives, Jojo Rabbitis dominated by an unexpected hilarity. Bedazzled pink...
