"Like a barnacle on the underside of a boat."
That was how he described their home to her. It hung from the side of the cliff facing the western end of the river, cantilevered out on reinforced wooden stilts. The young girl had never left the confines of the village; after remarking on the distant hamlets and farms that dotted the fields below, she wondered what her own home looked like to outsiders and travelers in the world below.
"You mean a sea-carriage?" Her voice was light and sweet like honeysuckle, and carried the lilt of a soprano. He laughed then, a deep, appreciative chuckle. She loved it when he laughed. He always threw his head back like the horses in her mother's drawings.
"No, I meant boat."
She tilted her head to one side, letting her honey-blonde hair fall over her shoulder. It usually hung in a long, single braid woven with her mother's nimble fingers, but today it was everywhere. "Mama calls them sea-carriages. I like that better."

they hang in the air
like hummingbirds that don't know where to go,
that can't quite find the nectar
and even if they do, it'll be out of
like drops of rain that find their target drenched,
holding careful palms aloft
to catch the tears, I mean the
like half-smoked cigarettes tossed from the car,
from the driver's seat window
down, down, down to the ground, still

At the end of the day.
I was recently asked what kind of person I was. It was rhetorical; I answered, "the short kind," and laughed.
But that got me thinking. What defines me?
Most people would answer such a question with their career. "I am an accountant," or, "I am a nurse," or, "I am a Google codemonkey." Or, if they are a student, "I am a student at [insert college here]." Even past that, one might answer with their hobbies. For example, I play video games. A lot. And I take pictures. I write. I read. I climb trees. I spend too much time on the internet. I listen to music. I go on walks and explore.
Is that what makes us? If life took you in such a way that you turned out to be a freelance journalist instead of a nurse, or led you to believe in ghosts instead of God, would you still be the same person?
I've only recently realized how open I am. How willing I am to speak to strangers, and get to know them, even if only for one day. Even if for just a few moments in passing. No, more than willing - e

You said it was one of those nights
when the laboured breathing of the slumbering world plagued the earth with lethargy,
and the liveliest of people would crawl into their beds,
seeking solace in the dreams that release them from reality's hold.
As they sank into the deepest of subconscious visionaries, you sighed
and opened the blinds.
I never knew what on earth you meant.
Surely someone waited for you in the warm folds of a comforter,
struggling to hold onto consciousness,
so that you could join them and fall asleep in their company?
As I cocked my head to one side in confusion, you sighed
and turned away in sorrow.
Glancing at his sleeping form beside me,
my sleepless eyes strayed to the arm loosely holding me to him,
and I knew that at some point in history,
another had lain in my place.
As his heartbeat lulled me into submission, I sighed
and closed my eyes.
You said it was one of those nights
that you'd been caught dead center in the eye of your own storm,
and sleep simply could

Happy Mother's Day
My mom never used dryer sheets.
 I didn't know they existed until I was homeless for two days and my friend let me do laundry at her house and told me she'd already put a dryer sheet in the dryer for me. I slept in my car in the cemetery the first night, on my friend's half-deflated air mattress puddle the next night, and alone in my car in the grocery store parking lot the third.
 My dad begged me to come home. He said he would help my mother communicate with me, said she would work things out with me. I didn't want to believe him. I shouldn't have.
 It's been a year and five months since I had a conversation with her. Two happy mother's day texts and a happy birthday text, and I received a single one-word text reply back,
 My mother likes to sing to the radio even when she doesn't know the words. She decided she wanted to sing because it made her happy. If she messes up the words, so be it. She likes to sing Spirit in the Sky and I Can Only Imagine. S
