La Clase de Marían

No podemos comprender la moda sin nuestro Gucci Lee, No podemos volar al cielo sin Súperbaby. Con Austin es más fácil buscar nuestro destino, y comprendemos el amor porque tenemos a Avery, la mujer del afecto. Nuestra amiga bailarina Felipa siempre está bailando, Y nuestro amigo Zane disfruta su vida de una manera diferente y... Continue Reading →

Star-Crossed Beams

Trace my jawline as if it were flushed metal, smile when you’re met with warmth and rusty whiskers, I’ll reach into your gilded ringlets and polish the gold beneath. Oh, how I’ve waited to bathe in your light. Eyes to put diamonds to shame, what is brilliance to she who blinds? Hold me close and... Continue Reading →

The Signs

(In this piece, I experimented with form. It is a variation of the rondeau, a short fifteen line poem with a repeated line as a refrain. Each stanza corresponds to one of the twelve astrological signs of the zodiac, which are subdivided into the four elements. See if you can match them all!)   Fire... Continue Reading →

Bubble Gummin’

Imagine the force it would take to dampen the thunder of an 808. It would have to be holy. But two black cocktails, and now you’re swimming in festering water. Rivers are chaste not by choice but by determination, yet not a current has cured a rooted pollutant— there is nothing godly about your silence.... Continue Reading →

I’d like to believe that it was unfair to Eve To be swallowed whole, But the Adam in me clings too tightly to the heartstring to know... Continue Reading →

Dear Skeleton Princess

Bored of death. You brought the dark with you. Bones, glued with flesh, brittle to the touch from abuse. The shards sting when they shatter. There is no torture like—having the pieces of you crumble down my throat. Do you see me? When your eyes sink into the back of your mind, do you only... Continue Reading →

Chemical Enlightenment

“Reality, as you currently experience it, is something like a waking dream. It is disguising deeper and more intensified levels of being and knowing. For those who are ready and willing, the doors to those other levels now stand open.” – Daniel Pinchbeck There is a certain psychedelic charm to Hinduism—something surreal about polymelian beings...

Waltz of Separation

  While others seek comfort in friends in making amends and playing pretend, I seek asylum under blankets. I drift away to the buzzing of my erratic thoughts so I can escape, so I can dream. Usually it’s the same: a man and a woman holding hands, my parents, inseparable except by physical confines but... Continue Reading →
