I’m asian.

So they tell me that my nose is flat,

I’m good at math and I eat cats

(or dogs, I like to alternate - that kitten’s got me feeling great)

My mom can’t drive, my dick is small,

For an asian, man I’m pretty tall

The kids would call me Ichiro when I would play baseba...

No matter time nor place,

There are some things that you should know

If I pass, just in case.

I tell you - do not grieve,

I know that it may suck

And as if I wanted to leave,

You dress me in a tux.

Can you keep me in mind?

Because I think you’ve won,

For all the friends I’ve le...

the guilt, the sad cities
I cried over and carried with me all these years
wasn't impossible
but
trying to empty
all of the tired from my bones
the hunger from...

     What do Arya Stark, Tommy Pickles, Kermit the Frog, Dilbert, Mickey Mouse, Rapunzel from Tangled, Rocky Balboa, Mulan, Mega Man, Prince Zuko, and several characters from The Simpsons have in common?

Considering it’s a rhetorical question, a...

Most English majors have been asked the following questions at least once:

  1. So, are you going to work in a coffee shop for the rest of your life?

  2. How are you going to get a job?

& Of Course:
    3. Oh, so you’re going to be a teacher?

     The floor creaked as I walked across the room, every step taken in agony, as more of my blood spilled oozed out with every step I took. My clothes were all ripped apart and soaked in blood, some of it, not my own, and some not even human. My wounds felt like a tho...

Staring back at me

is a woman I no longer recognize.

We share the same deep set brown eyes,

hers filled with unbridled hope,

while mine hold a weariness with life

that she has yet to experience.

Her face, lit with a smile so bright dimples pop in her healthy, glowing cheeks,

I started off like Miss Sunshine in a pretty party dress, my heart a bright red and blue ‘Open’ sign for the motel on that dark roadside where most accidents happen. With a smile, I would give beds away in exchange for good company. Caveat Venditor. My hourglass guests...
