  1. My adventure bridges at the end.

  2. Send me an e-mail to with a photo of yourself*. I will ask three questions. Please give a response to each. Your response can be in video form, audio form, or a simple quote — whichever is easiest for you.  Please make sure that your answers are complete and reflect your actual thoughts — don’t hold back.

    * we can include your name or not if you would like.

  3. You don’t owe me,
    you own me.

  4. acervate music,
    crashing cymbals
    into crashing cars.

  5. Basket

    Wicker baskets 
    filled with aged potpourri 
    faired in smelling 
    but no longer swift, 
    cloaked in greyed dust 
    from fan blades 
    calling to nose-irritating cotton candy 
    created in circles above; 
    the baskets with loosening skeleton, 
    a misshaped oval, 
    and misplaced home decoration 
    from a decade prior 
    compass the room 
    in different spots 
    regardless if the kids are home 
    or if the father has passed, 
    somehow the wicker basket 
    remains steady as a rock, 
    weighing down the interior. 

  6. Born to embrace, yet 
    bred to disgrace, 
    I fled from dishonesty and 
    bled for harmony, 
    knowing right from wrong, and 
    never losing the twine from the blanket. 

  7. It was barely love,
    a pat on the back, perhaps;
    it was love, perhaps.

  8. What doesn’t leave me hungry
    leaves me scared.
