When she talks her voice drips sunrise
All the hues mix and bleed
I blame her for woe births 
Fluttering stories on her canvas
Moonlight heralds no solace
Nor do stars nor heaven lamps
Give me serenades as supernovas
Hang me by cherry stems
My addiction to drowned dandelions
Steal sole of my soul
Act your pallad art
For those crimson lips to part
For the sun to pedal its start
Alas a con indeed
Please...

"Just a dollop."

The bowl quaked in Grandmother's hands, at her lips. She ate, then she smiled, and she slept. The air tasted bitter. Mamma took the doctor's hands with tears in her eyes, thanked him. Doctor turned for the door, his ears stretched back.

Six days after, they carried Grandmother out her sheets. Above wet cheeks, Doctor felt Mamma's forehead. It was porridge again.

"A spoon of sugar helps the medicine go down." He left with wolf ears. The...

PROMPT: That Sort of Person

Eric is the guy your eyes latch on to; his lopsided dark curls, crescent smile, hands deep in pockets; you laugh (in your head) at his jokes (overheard); you notice how he misses school every other week; in the hallway, your eyes meet (blush), for a nanosecond you pretend you are pretty.

Violet was the girl you tried to shake off; she said you didn't know how to dress and Goodwill was for beggars; but she was the...

It was walking at midnight in the ocean after the moon had disappeared. When the tide’s heart beat still as its wheeze is breathless. Waiting for time to resume by timing the ticks with tocks. But like a corse on the sand floor, it had passed too late and too far ago.

you rap on my sternum
the call        plop    plops
bereft
initial me pandora's box
lacquer peels with caress
kindle iron with
    a marching chest as
lilts tase my reed bones
cicatrix heals like second breath
you know i've always been

                                            alone
amber flags my heart's knob
treading in the smoke mill
your carnal swath casts
upon a gated threshold
ingress clasped in a
propellor blade
lids long    throbs leading    limbs twist
incense pools under an open cork

Eric's the kind of guy to burn birthday pancakes and make it up to you with a hundred "free-kisses" coupons.

Violet's the one friend who pulls an all-nighter for the chemistry test, then calls in sick and stays home.

Papa's the sort of man to show up early to recitals and fart sheepishly in the empty theater.

Mama's the only person who lets your wriggle into her bed on your periods, and laughs when you trip on air.

Mr. Owen's...
