The city sleeps tonight this chill keeps everyone huddled, closed, and wrapped up inside. It's easy to ignore the ache and hunger. There is something about tasting nothing, until the sun rises causing things to stir. Our warm nest of a bed shields us until the alarm claws, and my eyes must wake. I have…

Binge Watching

I want the television to tell the truth. I promise to search and save the titles to my profile. Come tomorrow, we'll commit ourselves to the asylum of our bed. We'll lay and binge watch Season and episode 1. I'd be much happier if, we could agree on the same title. We could fold up…

Drag Queen

There's this very bold and shiny world where want-to-be girls dress up to accentuate their curves. And all of us have no real issue paying the admissions price.

A dull and dreamy night, there is something stirring in and amongst this dark and sullen sky. I've traveled far this time against a row of thirsty streets. I haven't heard or seen the things I'd consider attention, but still, I'll wait my turn. Here at the end of an afternoon the sky seems burnt.…

Energy Drink

With something new she walks  up into eyes. I know I’ve seen  this look before, still, she’s hovering  over my shoulder half whispering,  giving me this thing to drink. I  look and half scan making sure that the girl and I share whatever is in this can. With heavy sips we finish, and toss whatever…

Like Only She Can

I have this hurting kind of love, that’s just on the surface where my skin aches to be touched. I want to be wrapped up like only she can. Yesterday I unblocked all the digital hurdles I’ve been stumbling over for years. I’m trying to figure out how to understand how to give up and…
