       i hiss

through an eternal winter i
             rush
                                   slide
     fshhhhhh
under your hiking boots

i wonder at the trust you place
in the strength
beneath the ice

Intergalactic Warfare

FREE WRITING

Here we sit for a time, you and I
eating crackers with passionfruit tea. 

We are a standstill star in the galaxy.
Around us, a cataclysm of hate and regret
Pulls meteors apart with thunderous power
Rips asteroids from their shimmery belts
Hurls constellations, blinded by war, at one another.

We see Orion impaled on the handle of a Dipper
Which one? It’s not clear, but perhaps
If you can find that little telescope from your seventh birthday
We can...

PROMPT: Personal Essay Competition: Making Change

These musings take their root in the midday heat of a Canadian August, atop one of the many big roller coasters that make up the colourful landscape of Canada’s Wonderland. I’m looking out over the tracks, watching the crowd push impatiently for entry. My four companions keep up a steady stream of excited chatter. I’m feeling lucky to have such easy access to the rides - just one of the many perks of being a summer camp counsellor.

Now it’s...

Folly

FREE WRITING

It happens every year. I’m out on the streets in the heat of sultry summer, scuffing my too-long toenails against broken cement, slipping my hands through the heavy green branches arching above my path. It’s scorching hot, lazy, and I’m covered in sweat and craving the reliable A/C of the public library - and then my flip-flop breaks. Strap snaps out of foam sole, I trip, the shoe curls beneath my moving foot, and my toes ram painfully into the...
