All is fair in love and D&D

I am going to do it today, Ginnie thought for the hundredth time as she jammed her Player’s Handbook and dice into her knapsack. I’m going to tell her how I feel.

She stopped in front of her hall mirror and looked herself over ‘just one more time.’ Fack I…

The confidence to be unsure — a free verse poem

And indeed there will be time
To wonder, “Do I dare?” and, “Do I dare?”
The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, T.S. Eliot

It’s May 1989 — a line of sheepish pink penguins, my toes

Despite a reputation as a bit of a skirt-chaser, N. had a distinctive Steve Rogers vibe about him. Not only did he have bulging muscles, a chiselled jaw, and a buzz cut, but he was kind and candid and surprisingly naive, especially about women.

My first mistake was sharking him…


A prose poem

The coffee shop is far too cold & my cup remains empty no matter how often I lift it to meet my forlorn lips — my fingers are stiff with misgivings & the sour self-doubt of this eviscerated moment — the clock ticks are taunting, its calloused hands spiraling

There are a handful of bands that circulate through my bloodstream perpetually. I put them back on the shelf, only to find weeks or months later, a craving has crept up on me — not unlike an overwhelming urge to eat sushi.

I just finished watching Netflix’s Shadow and Bone. What a ride! Set in Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse, it’s a surprisingly captivating story in a world that echoes WW1-esque Russia and prohibition-era America. …


An inserted prose poem

“You only have to look at the Medusa straight on to see her,” Hélène Cixous writes, “And she’s not deadly. She’s beautiful and she’s laughing.”
