mr. summer-time, inside-out t-shirts,
hyphenated thoughts that bend over
and lean on the piano for support…
if there’s anything i’ve remembered
from my time with you, it is the color
of your water-color soul, keys dancing
underneath your shaking hands and
tired, wet eyes. mr. summertime, you
have all of the seasons in your voice
and in your songs, but it’s 4:32 am on
an august morning, and no one can
ever embody this better than you.

Leaving Refuge

PROMPT: Refuge

Refuge is a place where people call you by your name, tasting sweet syllables on their tongues, hanging on to the meaning. It is a place where you spend so much time with your desk mates that you get a text, simple & sweet, when you miss a day, making sure you are okay. It is walking hallways you have memorized, passing people you know, noticing tiny changes (the poster is down, the windows were washed, room 202 is decorated...

ENDGAME SPOILERS

READ AT YOUR OWN RISK IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE



in ash and darkness, tony stark died today,
and the winds of time swept him away.
but his suits in gold & crimson glory stay,
long after his dying words faded to gray.

although our hero died far from home,
in a world of destruction, death and stone,
all his suits did not follow where he roamed,
and now they are in the Stark house, alone.

mythical realism

FREE WRITING

there are dragons in the valley,
beside the freeway going north,
centaurs running in the mountains, 
from a place of magic source. 
there are mermaids in the coves,
but only under a midnight moon, 
and pegasus come at sunrise,
to sip from salted, sea lagoons. 
there is magic all around us,
of the sea, of land, and wing, 
but they are difficult to recognize,
unless you open your heart & see.

the goat lifts her head.
beyond the fence line:
a deer.

for a split moment, 
she remembers: 
my family was once wild too.

but then the deer moves on,
& so does she.

from the second story of
a high school painted yellow,
i see a figure walking to 
their car, far below.

the volleyball captain. i
watch as he reaches out,
and takes one broad, pink
flower from the bush beside
the parking lot.

he continues walking to 
his car alone, pink petals in
his hand, examining the beauty
he found.

i think,
"maybe there's more
innocence and joy in this 
world than i thought."

even now, there is hate

when i was in elementary school
i learned about something called
“the holocaust” (i couldn’t figure
out how to pronounce it at first).
i didn’t understand what it was
until my teacher told me that
an evil man hated beautiful
people for no reason, and others
listened because he talked well.
i thought, “good thing they are
safe now.”

when i was in middle school,
i read about a girl called Anne.
most middle schoolers did.
i cried, because trapped...
