PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021


i discovered love in the kitchen sink on a tuesday.
all the dishes were painted peach. i discovered love
while slicing oranges and laying them out for you,
and decided i was the first of my kind to understand,
love or you or anything at all. i discovered love back
 in ‘66, and then it killed me, and then i came back
again and again until i found you, with your smile
burning wild and wide from half a country...

Set Up For Failure: The Pattern of Racial Bias in College Entrance Exams

PROMPT: Op-Ed Competition 2021

    
    As another school year inches towards a close, high school students such as myself all over the globe prepare to take those daunting college entrance exams we all know as the SAT and ACT. Don’t be mistaken, though; we as students do not experience this time of year as one universal trial. Certain minorities, it seems, face a more difficult reality.

song of the vast old night

FREE WRITING


i became the moon in your sky
just so i could follow you home again. it’s a story
that’s been told many times before, i’m sure. girl chases girl
chases girl chases girl, girl is moonlight, girl is record scratch
and slow dance,   girl is ten feet too tall and has forgotten how to wake up.
girl becomes all things breathing in the dead of night
because we are rabid and we cannot sleep.
i’m sorry, we all say, as...

death by slow dance

FREE WRITING


i want you between my teeth and under my fingernails. the bones in my body will make room for you. i will pry open my ribcage and build a home for you beneath my heart. look; we have both been cut open and poorly mended. little rag doll love, there is a yawning in your chest into which my hands reach, and i will search for your history, for your deepest fears, painted blue in the moonlight. i will stir...

three ways to return

FREE WRITING


i. a man is asked to draw a bedroom and he draws a womb in its place. slow and delicate and humming with sleep. in so many places at once, we crawl into our mothers, float belly-up on love's ancient tide. we will never return to what we had, but in this moment, the sheets are sinew and the warmth is warmth, and the darkness our breakfast. the walls, shaded red, basking in the rotten plum dusk. for one more...

world as a waiting room in which we make a song

FREE WRITING


the toe-tap. the one-and-two. the rhythm that arises out of the beating of a breath. and suddenly we’re saying drum-beat chest. saying hit me. saying strike it and make a noise. set it aflame just to hear the crackling. the red and orange tempo. our rage, colorized. heave-ho. sifting the days into the next. the grandiosity of being mundane. look at us, organized and quiet. look at us in our neat little rows. blue chairs that scratch along the ground....
