On the roof again

I don’t dream much – since I have gotten older my mind usually wakes me up in the middle of the night to do its thinking – it seems my brain is worried to let my subconscious muse around on its own because it is afraid of what it might find – but last night I slept the entire night and when I woke I...

Mourning time

You are whom you wake up as. If the red of the sun’s eye finds you stretching away from sleep on a dirt floor of a clay hobble with ten years of adolescent growth on your face, and your mother is sobbing in the other room because the crack of gunfire throughout the night was more deliberate than it...

How does matthea Harvey do it?

I dream about sleeping with Matthea Harvey now. I’ve never actually seen her before, I don’t know what she looks like, but I dream of running my tongue down behind her knee cap until she rolls over and screams one and half seven pound twins at me. Take one she says, and get out of here with that.... Sign in to see full entry.

Growing up with America

My father said that hurricanes were made by little black boys in Africa. They take hands full of sand and throw them at the ocean simliar to the way you would throw a curve ball. He said that sometimes, when it was done right, the wind would snatch up the sand and drag it into the sky across the... Sign in to see full entry.

Sunset Heights

The parking lots of the taquerias are empty. Except for the big one, the one they’ve always gone to even when they didn’t live here. That one is full of Mini-Coopers and Jettas. And now the houses are all painted in earth tones. The flowerbeds have expensive plants in them, the porches are decorated... Sign in to see full entry.

Haunted City.

They walk through the Streets of Victoria right after nightfall. They are going to a bar that someone told them about near the main marina. They are going to listen to a Canadian bluegrass band. Marky thinks the town feels likea disjointed never-never land because of all the run-a-ways begging for... Sign in to see full entry.

Whale, you're gone.

I have this dream about you. You’re gliding across a green sky on the back of a winged whale. In the dream you’re going somewhere to care for people, to lead a people in need. The people watch you come out of the sky, they use their hands to shield their eyes from the sun so they can see you holding... Sign in to see full entry.

Do you want this or not.

He sits on the bare concrete of the median, legs crossed, cheeks drooping, eyes staring obliviously through the windshields of the cars waiting at the stop light, staring through the occupants inside, blinded by his mind that is busied by another time. His carboard sign declaring his sad condition... Sign in to see full entry.

Nonsense

She is sad, sad to the point that she thinks about death. She thinks about how to die. I use to do that too, I said. First, I said, I thought about how they would feel if I died, then one day I thought about how to die. I want to die, she said. It wil pass I said. She says, not if I die first. I say...

Ada & Larry

Her name is Ada. She works for a fat lawyer by the name of Larry Dober. Larry has an advertisement on a country radio station where the morning DJ testifies that Larry Dober is the greatest legal mind in the city. He’ll protect them if they have a wrongful death suit, a work related accident, or if... Sign in to see full entry.
