Have You Seen Yourself: Forgetting Your Own Race

Making The Most Of It: The Aftermath Of A 21st Turn Up

Two nights ago was my roommate’s 21st birthday. I can definitely say that he enjoyed his time partying and celebrating being a full on adult.

Birth of Solitude

A home-stricken, blind little girl.
She calls to the wind, a cry of boredom,
To relieve her of boundaries.

She crawls and feels for a corner to shrivel in.
Sitting there at the edge of humanity,
Waiting to fall.
