When the songs playing in the dive-bar match up perfectly with your heart, it feels like you may have hit a glitch in the matrix. Maybe I haven’t been here. Maybe this is exactly where I need to be. Like an altered form of deja-vu, things line up too well. It’s our jobs as humans […]

Isn’t it cruel that February, the month meant for the little guy, is the shortest? Can’t just be irony. There’s no way the universe is accidental but the dates within it are decided. A calendar was created. Sun cycles and moon cycles as the probable guide. Things cycle. Fluidly. They’re moving constantly. But yet we […]

Head-space under siege Brain like pearl harbor in the early 20th Fire in the water! Duck for cover! Thoughts are on the fritz Scattered and forlorn I’m exhausted from the racing, Scorn from the losing score Been stuck on pacing back and forth, Like a borderline version of Usain Bolt Too good at this for […]

Yeah, we’re meant to be alone, ultimately. Think about it. As different as we all are, is it possible that there’s one human out there that perfectly fits all the needs of another? Very, very slim chance. Even if that is how it works, what if that one person died years ago? Or they became […]

If you told my law-breaking 16 y.o self that I’d be protecting others, ex-con turned good samaritan, wearing cuffs and posing for mugshots gone citizen arresting rogue agent, I wouldn’t have believed you. But here I am, certified and ready for action.

Working for the white. The rich. The powerful. When your industry involves expensive weddings and black tie gala’s, you know you’re spending most hours on the clock holding the door open for those that don’t even believe I have the right to marry someone of the same sex. But a job is a job. Swallow […]

Been some time between us. The thing that makes me lose all fucking control. Swear, this ink is a damn drug. A therapist. A love. A future. An enemy. A career. All in one. How could one strike it so damn lucky? One fucking stone, and it feels like I’ve got this whole flock. Stoned. […]

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 […]
