Unapologetic Regret

Australia

I'm your stock wannabe hipster teen; a little awkward (but working on it), outlandish, cynical. Big fan of irony, dark (maybe offensive) humour, and electronic music. I like being the class clown, but ill attention makes me want to hide in my locker.

Is it better to carry the burden of knowledge, or the lightness of naïvety? Don't apologise for whichever one you choose.

We Made It

PROMPT: Solidarity

Our world stops, again, dares to hope.
Screens light up with reports confirming the news.
The WHO Declares Official End of COVID-19 Pandemic.

Lights flicker on, tentatively at first;
The shops with shelves stripped bare,
The deserted schools and universities,
The homes of friends and family—
Slowly our world awakens
From that horrible coma.

We reintroduce ourselves to a new normal;

Chronic Utopia

FREE WRITING

The world is a beautiful place tonight. I reach deep within myself for words to describe this visceral connection, and come up empty. Possibly the great muses and poets could articulate this much better than me, but right now, I could not care less.

Starbursts

PROMPT: Micro Memoir

I see the shock on the driver's face before I can feel it. Against my best interests, two things wriggle their way to the forefront of my brain: one, Wow, are those Starbursts on her backseat?; and two, I could really go for a Starburst right now. The vivid image of Starbursts spilling over a smooth leather interior remains as I'm thrown from my bike into the air. Only a second later, after I've rolled across the top of...
