Seth Rich

I watched a video today of a teenager being tazed to death in the balls while handcuffed by people sworn to protect and serve us. The police department got away with it because they kept the video hidden long enough that it passed the statute of limitations for criminally negligent homicide. I watch the political … More Seth Rich

Bean

I’m in a writing mood, and I can’t sleep. So fuck it, let’s write. Two posts in one night?! The absolute madman! Writing will never get me laid. At best it’s a one-line thing during initial conversation. “Oh cool, yeah I’ve never been there. So what do you do for fun?” “Well, I work all … More Bean

Duality

The flatness and dullness of West Tennessee has me restless. I yearn for mountains. A new city. New people. I want the satisfaction of stumbling across a bar and learning it’s someone’s favorite place, and I found it without even trying. “Of course I found it,” I’ll say with my eyes. I won’t be welcomed … More Duality

Windows

It’s been raining for days. Well, really it’s been raining for weeks with brief periods of sunshine. It would be romantic in a melancholy way if not for the lack of views to enjoy it. Small, rectangular windows which I’ve covered in blackout curtains. Beyond them, broken asphalt roads with angry drivers, cheap houses on … More Windows

Love hard. Give all. Open your heart and let it be filled.

Tart

My dad said the word “tart” today to describe a salad dressing my mom made. It made me want to throw my head into a boiling pot of water. Of course I don’t know why. Maybe it was just so…him of him, to describe something with such specificity, oblivious to the way it emasculated him … More Tart

Sorry

My writing has been garbage lately. It’s the biggest reason I’ve been absent from it. I have about 30 drafts, all discontinued once I realized I didn’t know what I was doing with them anymore. Everything has been whiney, “poor me,” and repetitive. That’s not my brand. I’m not sure I know exactly what my … More Sorry

Big Dumb Heart

A girl gave me the axe today. That’s nothing new, I guess. But I’m sad. I really liked her. I even told her that I *gulp* loved her. Jesus that was stupid. I mean, I meant it, yeah, but still…this is dating. You can’t tell people what you actually mean or how you really feel. I … More Big Dumb Heart

The Rearview

Jonathan arrived in his Honda Civic and parked in the driveway. The house number matched the address on the Uber app, and he checked the rider’s profile to see who he’s picking up. “Claire. Sounds nice.” Claire’s phone buzzed to let her know that Jonathan, her Uber ride, had arrived. She grabbed her jacket off the sofa, … More The Rearview
