Icon is a bizarre word. The idealization of taking someone’s likeliness that’s never particularly been comfortable being typecast. The one’s whom were never quite on par with the mold get appreciated for such, after their molds have been broken. They become the trend. They become the focus. They become the message. The notorious become the […]

You’re already 2. Wow. How does time pass so fast? Thought your Mom and I’d reconcile things by now. She’s doing the right thing for you, though, as much as it pains me to say. She loves you, so much. You changed her life, you know? You gave her purpose, kept her focused and motivated […]

The fall-back. The ‘ol ink stroke on dead tree parts. At least someone is making use of deforestation. Better that they don’t go barren, blank and completely wasted. My generation is full of writers that seem to have lost that physical touch. They would rather utilize the digital format because “it saves time” and eases […]

How is it possible that so many of you previous date-night partners are nurses? It’s like you’re having some secret meeting. All the lesbians stemming from the healthcare field, just conjuring at some underground layer directly between HCMC and St. Joes at Fairview Riverside. You’ve all met, and you’re all in agreeance: I’m sick! I […]

Companionship. At the end of the day, that’s all I want. Someone to take trips with. Someone to celebrate promotions and professional milesones with. Someone to curl up with when the sun rests it’s eyes for the night. Someone to kiss when the times allows, and someone that’s okay with a kiss when it doesn’t. […]

Who can I call for advice these days now that you’re no longer around to pick up the phone? Your level-headedness balanced the uptight and anxious side of me. That’s why I can’t always just call Mom for anything, you know. She gets messy with her emotions. You could be steadfast. You could bare the […]

Almost went to that island-you know-the one from that time-you know. It was your 21st birthday. Both of us knew what a meaningful birthday our peers deemed it to be. You were understandably excited about earning the aged ability of entering any adult venue and sipping any alcoholic beverage you wanted. Everyone should be stoked […]

26 and fully aware. People always say “you’re wise for your age”. …they don’t even know. Always have mentally carried 25 extra years of weight Boy, does it weigh you down, when you can’t shield yourself from intuition, when you can sense what’s coming isn’t what you wanted. “We need to talk” never means “let’s […]

How fucking selfish can one person be? Testing all the theories and so far none of the hypothesized answers are the final one. Accurate as your calculations may be, it doesn’t matter if you’re mixing things that are dangerously non-cohesive. Dating to be loved. Dating to be wanted. Dating for all the wrong reasons, right?

You women are dangerous. Sitting here at my new recent watering hole-the one populated by the hipsters of Minneapolis. It’s also, conveniently, the closest late night bar to my lonely, basement, studio apartment in Uptown. I happen to enjoy these dive bars, a lot. This city is filled with people that feel the same way […]
