i’m running through
a labyrinth trying to reach you
you’re ahead of me
moving—
like a reckless shooting star
falling from the sky
reaching for the center of the maze
the fountain of youth sits
unperturbed, waiting
the liquid gold melts off the metal,
inviting you closer
you’re hypnotized by its promise
“just a sip,” you say, dipping a finger in
the sun ray’s seem to have turned to liquid—
dripping off your fingertips and onto your tongue
“a taste,”...

mango.

mango.
the summer sun beats down on my back,
my shirt becomes a second skin -
sticky sweat clings to the back of my knees,
beneath my bra like an oil slick.
a thick humidity fills my lungs like incense
it’s monsoon season -
a time of cleansing the earth & ourselves of sin
an epoch of renewal like snakes shedding skin
a rebirth in rain, my mom says;
they look like behemoth puffs of cotton
floating in the...

diamond eyes, lips full of rich lies, saltwater skies

FREE WRITING

diamond eyes,
lips full of rich lies
“you taste like money,” i said.
bills tucked beneath your tongue
between your fingers like a blunt
you hide behind couture
you saw me staring at your rolex
when we first met
i thought to myself -
the buckle was probably worth
more than five years’ worth of rent
sapphires in your eyes,
(you said you saw the ocean in mine,
so you called me ocean eyes)
liquid gold in your...

summer child.
my childhood was filled with / scaling trees
navigating through / concrete mazes /
with ease
dangling fruit hangs
from tenacious branches
i lean against the trunk
a book in my palms
i’m fully at home -
i fall into the comfort of it all
the mellow strum of my
brother’s ukulele put me in a lull
i breathe in the words
as tea brews in the kitchen /
the perfume of a summer peach
diffuses in the...

migraine.

FREE WRITING

migraine.
i ramble without a pause. trying to silence
the pain
                stumbling
                                through
                                                my brain
i count my steps, chewing gum to focus
fingers brush against the glossy fence,
the white noise ringing in my ears
gives me a migraine.
saccharine bubblegum is tasteless now
boots that beat against concrete
chipping away vibrant chalk
goosebumps rise on my skin
the white noise gets louder -
overwhelming every thought
like fluorescent
lights searing my mind.
everything’s abysmal -
full of wild...
