The pen hadn’t been worth stealing. Just a biro, maybe worth fifty cents new. Second-hand? Nothing. Literally worthless. She tossed it onto the coffee-table and slid her hands into her pockets to clutch a tissue in one, Chapstick in the other. A pen’s worth everything, Ben would have said. Worth the words you write with […]

B is for Battle, and Byron, and Beautiful. She walks in Beauty like the night. It’s for Bright, Broken, and Bedlam. B is for Blackboards, faint squeak of chalk, teachers dusting off their hands, the tap tap tap as someone writes up words or numbers. A very satisfying sound, that. I never wanted to be […]

Wants and Needs

I’m trying to get back into the daily writing flow. It’s surprising what you can do with 30 minutes, you know? Even 15 can get you started. And getting started is the important part. Once I hit my stride, I often keep going. Sometimes I can’t get into what I’ve started, and that’s fine. It […]

Climb

Today is a day in which there is a wall. On the other side of the wall are the things I have to do. I want to get to these things, and do them, but there is a wall. It’s an invisible wall; I can see the things I want and need, but I cannot […]

“Blues for Sister Sally”, hooked on junk, Forever hunting, poking for a sign; I remember when we sang together, drunk On joy and laughter, and on cheap red wine. My Brother Jack sits gazing at the sky, The dark horizon calling him away. He’ll walk until his ligaments give way, And leave him stranded, dreaming […]

Currently - April 2017 Edition

I always feel weird doing a Currently when I haven’t been posting much in a month, but they’re good ways to vent, and I’ve had a tough week.   Loving I’m playing through ME3 again and goddamnit this game was a fucking masterpiece. Yeah, yeah, there was always the drama about the ending, but that […]

I’m going to do an alphabet. Just every so often, when I have nothing more urgent to talk about. Sorry about no posts last week – I had an essay due Thursday, so Wednesday I couldn’t spare the time, and then Saturday I was just a little tiny bit hung over. A lesson once again […]

Sin Eater is a weight in my pocket right now. The thing I want to be working on, but that I’m not touching because I have things with deadlines to deal with first. There’s a 2,700 word essay I need to finish by Thursday, and I have upwards of 100 pages of reading a week. […]

I am a ghost. On translucent soles I navigate the slick city streets, Afraid of falling. The mist Creeps in from Ran’s wide road, Muffling sounds of mid-week hustle. I grind my feet Against the asphalt, Finding purchase, Mincing steps for fear that in my heedlessness I’ll slip, And for a moment, suspended, unbreathing, contemplate […]

Hey guys! It’s been a month. Uni started up again, and I think it’s doing well so far. One assignment handed in, and waiting for the grade on that is gnawing on my nerves. Still, I’m more on top of things than I usually am. I’m even getting most of my readings done! (I know, […]
