PROMPT: Micro Memoir

I never told you about my panic attack. 

But less than 24 hours ago I had passed out in my mom's room after waking her up. It sounds terrible because it was. I was spread-eagle on the floor, and for once she was the one with the cool head. I couldn't see, couldn't hear, couldn't even taste the dryness of my mouth. The only thing that brought me back was the waving wind from the fan as it surveyed the...

i’ve started staying up until midnight. 

the exhaustion doesn’t weigh so heavily on matted eyelashes after 11:30. i begin to think about running away and moving out. being somewhere else. being someone else. my brain moves fast. at least this time it moves forward.

i like the taste of sweet things now. more than i ever did before. every dollar i spend on my own food makes me proud. i want to buy all my food. i don’t want to...

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.
