“who should defend the moon, if not poets?”

I offer no other wisdom than this quote by some random guy and a book recommendation of ‘A Little Life’ by Hanya Yanagihara

There is something that strikes me, about humanity. The force that binds us more than anything, the reason we seek for existence, our purpose. Oh sure, you can get by in life by wanting something badly enough; money, fame, power. But when everything is stripped away; clothes or possessions or brains and we are left bare of everything but ourselves, we aren’t left with want.

Love.

There is a reason we feel safest in our mother’s arms, wrapped in our...

In the wake of the storm

PROMPT: Science Fiction Competition 2021

The world is a desert; a harsh, arenose, barren landscape. The sun is a laser that seeks to kill. The year is 2220, there is no such thing as a skyscraper, there is no such thing as new or shiny, only the distant memory of what once was. We have wrecked the world. There is no repair. 

Our houses rise out of the ground like stunted, misshapen lumps with no purpose other than to provide shade from the roasting...

for telling you it hurts?
for grimacing,
for crying,
or wincing,
when I’m reining in a scream.

that the knuckles on my left hand
are red, raw and bruised
from where I’ve been
digging in the nails of my right?
or do you simply not care?

I don’t have the heart,
don’t know how to reply
to “why don’t you go out with your friends?”
with anything other than a lie

because I have a long list of acquaintances.
but somewhere along the way,
everyone picked up the social skills
that I never got.
“I don’t know what to say”
that’s the truth.

No man is an island
and yet its been years 
since anyone washed up on my shores.

I’m drifting farther and farther
