To the other mother sitting across from me, hugging your purse to your body, as you sit scared and cold and alone. You’re not having a good day. Your hair is neatly tucked behind your ears, and your clothes look a little too big. Have you lost your appetite? Are you sick inside and terrified?Continue reading “A Little Left (of center)”
To make my grandmother’s special chicken and noodles you must first be fearless. You gotta clean your hands and enter her kitchen with your sins washed away for she will see them. All of them, saying nothing as she stirs the fine flour into a dusty powder. You wont need to speak much as herContinue reading “8 Minutes in Heaven”
I used to discover things… Once I explored a ship that had sailed across the ocean connecting it’s lines from one corner of the world to another. Once I saw the world’s largest frying pan.

Leonard Cohen and I need to talk. He basically destroyed me. I think he knew and loved a crazy girl once and she must have hurt him, bad. She was crazy and that clearly implies- best lover the poor guy ever had. Her tendrils wrapped around his finger and her broken pieces unfurled like aContinue reading “Tea & Oranges”
The last 15 second kiss stains my lips like a pleasant Riesling. Unforgettable and humbling, heady and tantalising, to remember you all I need is to close my eyes and lick my lips….
This place is for losing. For the coward in me who is too frightened to do the choosing. The place my whole being begs to be heard by you. To laugh with you… You’re the only one who gets me. Without that feeling I draw a needle back and it reveals me, empty. It literallyContinue reading “Notes on a Suburban Scandal”

Brick homes with stone walls, and tree lined streets, cool blades of blue green grass quaffed perfectly at our feet. We began a half dream there together, lying under a perfect tree, on a perfect day with perfect weather. Your smile speaks to me… to a place I can’t deny. A…
