Valley

Valley ~ V Monotone Omnipresent The constant aftershock, thud and thrum of a car’s movement Vibrant buzzing, vehicular pulse, lovely varnishing friction A Caterwauling Undulating Sirens screaming, howling in a maddening fervor Sudden rush of activity, alarming warning, amplifying the emergency L Sedating Massive A rolling symphony, the rumble of the many-wheeled metal leviathans Like…


Griffin

Griffin ~ G Stuttering Clunking Breaking down, old, old cars, car parts, broken Gasping, gurgling, gripping at the life that leaves them R Vivacious Life-giving Best, brightest, powerful vibration, loudest voice of all Rumble strips, cars wandering, metal trembling against ribbed ridges I Squealing Jarring Squeaking, sharply temporary sound of brakes, breaking the fall Innate,…


Lenity

Lenity ~ My shadow is growing longer I haven’t heard anyone laughing We must be the last ones left I don’t have to look to know you’re there Whoever you are, your mother is calling you I thought her voice was calling me But then she called you sweetie My mother never says that anymore…


Ennui

Ennui ~ The sky is turning purple We’re the last ones on the playground My mother calls me, her voice is firm but gentle Your mother is still ignoring you This whole time you’ve been sitting alone Kicking the wood chips under the swing She hasn’t looked at you at all She’s been talking to…


Nyctalopia

Our eyes were shut. We’d been living in such a somnambulistic paradise for so many years, our senses dulled by the narcoleptic passage of time. Our every waking moment, we lived in peace and splendor, and yet our avarice for adventure had not waned. We needed for nothing, and still we lusted for so much…


The Way The Light Catches

~ After a while, you start noticing things. Little things. Things so small you never noticed them before – except now, every little thing matters. So you notice. You don’t even question why, at this point. You just tend to accept the fact that you notice things now.   The way the light catches the…


Love, Trust, and Car Keys

~ I’ve been waiting by the phone for at least an hour and a half. I know it’s silly of me, but I just can’t stop wondering if he’ll call. The little readout on the phone says that it’s almost ten thirty, but it feels like it’s so much later… everything around me seems dark….


Finite Moments

~ “Who is John Galt?” The voice sounded deep within a spiral galaxy, in a mushroom cloud nebula. Faint lights coasted to and fro within a dreamlike workshop, a room whose walls throbbed and pulsed like a collapsed lung. One of the inhabitants of the workshop-specifically, its creator-turned her head towards the origin of the…


White Rose Red

~ “On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with the red roses?” Far wandering is the lost and tainted soul, in lust’s caresses Posing as the angel sent to please, from hell beyond the mind’s control The moth-like heart, so drawn to the untempered flames of passion and pretenses…


White Crippled Wings

~ Snapshots of this daydream, they whisper Galilean prophecies and Sweet sonnets of misfortune Promises of new skies Sung by birds in flight Leading ghosts from White crippled Broken Wings
