creature of the night

FREE WRITING

a creature of the night
he crawls along the arid grains,
leaving subtle ministrations
in the Great Sahara.
A viper glides past him with ease,
becoming one with the golden sands
he’s reminded of his thirst,
and his hunger that leaves a
scathing weight in his stomach.
winds pull at him, warning him of a sweeping sand storm.
he finds shelter as a storm rages next to him,
blinding innocent victims in its wake.
the night soon descends on him...

we are a theory

FREE WRITING

“like relativity, we are a theory.”
we are a hypothesis of life
collecting data on our endurance in this life:
whether it be grades, resilience, talent
we are a theory of adulthood
tested with stress, anxiety, homework, endless studying
we are a theory of who we’d like to be
scientists,doctors, lawyers,embracers of success
we are theories of fame, success and glory
some left as afterthoughts and others continuing to taste glory
failed experiments fall
success can only prove the hypothesis ...

a willing apocalypse

FREE WRITING

a willing apocalypse
when the bullet rang, i prepared to race
when the heavens fell, the angels lost grace
when the bell broke the silence, the diver fell
when the world ended, the devil raised hell
i watched oceans flood with their liquid palms  
i watched fires consume life, guided by the bombs
i watched the world end and let it take me
i watched the world die and enjoyed the quiet

a girl of color in a pale world

FREE WRITING


my daughter asks me why her skin is brown
  • like sweet milk swirled into bitter coffee
and why her eyes aren’t blue or green
  • “why are they so dark, mama? i want blue eyes like ashley novak”
she asks me why her thighs touch
  • “these jeans don’t fit, mama”
she asks me why her jeans don’t fit her properly
and why her adolescent chest is forced into a bra
and why she can’t eat meat on certain days and weeks...
