The Year is 2020

PROMPT: Speechwriting Competition 2020

An estimated 30 percent of eligible Americans will surrender their control of their futures to a group of strangers. Indifferent, they will place their lives in the hands of others and toss their fates up to the wind, fully aware of the possibility that they and those they love may be swept into a gaping abyss.

 An estimated 60 million people will choose not to vote in the 2020 election.

Of course, the numbers areimpressive. Voting turnout is predicted...

To the Girl I Once Knew

PROMPT: Letter Writing Competition 2020

Hey Meg!
We haven't spoken in a few days, and I miss you! When's the next time you can talk? It hasn't been too long, but I wish you were here. Anyways, if you want to come over, I've got more of those Kool-Aid squirt bottles we make our drinks with (I even have your favorite, grape). Think you can make it here?

shoes

PROMPT: Intersection

shoes—
tennis shoes
knotted
double, by the laces—
dangle from a nail—
iron oxidized to rust
bent, crooked—
embedded in a tree—
tall, bark split and worn
leaves the color of green vinyl
the size of tennis shoes—

— shoes.

my heart is b l e e d i n g

FREE WRITING

my heart is bleeding 
i am screaming
the sky is light but i’m still hearing
the words they hid so carefully

tucked away behind a throne
forged of flesh, heartache, and bone
they lie still composed
oblivious to pain

my heart is bleeding
i am screaming
for the one who stood between
as they ripped apart each other

and left nothing but a breeze
