Blue Marble

The memory is as dark as the night sky that crooks her bedroom windowpane, caught between moonlight and the reflection of snow outside. The memory is a blue marble. A secret. Hot as the small fist that grips it. It is rolling slowly along the living room floor, edging...

Roll Tide

I park my car in my secret place off Fort Lauderdale Beach,behind the sea grape hedging The Button nightclub where years later, the spot will become a designated place to store recycling bins, but for now, for this second in time, it's a place to park a small ass...

Dismembering Resistance

The acrid smell of dust, mold and wasted time permeates the long corridor. A candelabra stands sentinel to the right of each door, barely providing enough light to perceive the doorknobs. I stand alone, a dreadful foreboding weighing down on each uncertain step. The...

If This is a Life-threatening Emergency Please Hang Up and Dial 911 Later you’ll say, Let’s pretend this never happened. But now you grab the belt again. Buckle high and ripe. Swinging for the fences. For young skin. My step-sis. My step-brother. Splatter of blood...
