Mixtape of my life thus far

PROMPT: Mixtape

In no particular order

1) A Proper Polish Welcome-Torres
    Allow me to clarify with this one that I am not polish. I chose this song for its moody intersection of oceanic imagery with     descriptions of a wlw relationship.
2) June- Florence and the Machine
    It makes me want to run away, find a city, something, anything. 
3) Youth- Glass Animals
4) Mother-Tori Amos

cortland apples

PROMPT: Extraordinary in the Ordinary

I am a child of mundanity, the bruised fruit
picked at the tail of autumn,
cortland apples, my grandfather

their only crime, that they were no longer useful

Scene in the park in autumn

PROMPT: Novel Writing Competition 2018


    "Hey kid," James' mother burst through the door.

    "You'll see. Just get your coat for god's sake. We have to leave before it...

mid-autumn musings

PROMPT: Your World in Three Senses

have you ever thought about
how you are aware of your limbs
of where they are in space
even when you can't see them

I rest my hands on the bark of a dying
maple, his body insect hollowed
I hope my warmth lingers, a comfort,
as I try to plug up the holes in his body

beneath bark and lichen both
(if I disregard the interlopers)
he is smooth

I have a secret, I am fallible,
an animal still, I...

I make you end the call

PROMPT: Unconventional

in spite of
the desperation of
your written word, you have nothing
to say
to me.
.
for the first time in my life I
make no motion
to fill these empty minutes
I listen to your silence,
and
.
.

.
I make you end the call

PROMPT: Impermanence

from heat, now from rain
