Just Walking



Have you ever wanted to pick up your bag and walk away?
I did that one day. Just picked up my wallet and my important papers, and my backpack. I walked out the door, locked it and started walking. I almost threw my keys into a ditch, but changed my mind last minute. Maybe I had my cellphone, I don't know. It was a A nice Sunday morning. My dad wasn't home and my sister wasn't up. Not too cool, not too warm outside. I had on a long sleeved shirt, jean shorts, and tennis shoes. Probably not the most practical but whatever. I wasn't going on a camping trip. I was just leaving. Right then. Getting out, walking away. Stopped thinking. Stopped doing. Stopped being.
Honestly I'd thought about it for awhile, you know. Just walking out and walking away. Don't know what it as but apparently, Sunday was the day. I don't quite remember why but... maybe it was not being able to find my keys for the millionth time, looking for them for two hours straight, then seeing 'em sitting on the kitchen counter, pretty as you please. Maybe it was seeing the fourth email telling me my application for grad school wasn't complete. Maybe it was the look on my father's face when he saw the dishes piled in the sink; the ones no one had taken the initiative to wash the night before. Tight mouth, corners of his eyes turned down, shoulders slumped in disappointment--and me being the only one to see it. 
I don't make make friends. I don't talk to people don't look them in the eye. I... never thought I would be standing on the side of the rode, one of those people with a backpack. Just walking. Not hitchhiking because that isn't as safe as it used to be. Was it ever really? Truth is, I felt carved out from my pelvis to my breasts and I had nothing left to give. No one got that, I think, that I had poured everything out already and yet their hands were always cupped waving under my face and demanding more. I am carved out, don't you understand!? That's what I wanted to say, but I didn't know how to make my mouth work that way. The words would just sit in my chest, right under my breast bone and make a racket only I could hear. It made me mad, but what can you do? 
I started walking.

Prompt idea by RebelPandaFish:
Your character wakes up in the middle of the night to find an alien in their back yard. Write what happens next?
Noni looked up from her algebra homework and stared out the sliding doors. The blinds were pulled closed but she could see a faint glowing light through cracks between the blue vinyl slats. She glanced up the stairs and at the microwave beside the stove. The panel blinked 3:37 am. She wasn't even supposed to be downstairs, but she had to finish her homework before morning and didn't want her mom to know that she hadn't really done it all the night before.

Brier Rose I


Marion Drake and Seth Rose met and married when she was twenty-three and he was twenty-five and about to complete his dentistry program. Seth Rose was known as a serious, studious, and most of all sensible young man.  His marriage to Marion, a directionless wild child, troublemaker and self-acknowledged abuser of various pain medications and really whatever mood altering substance that happened to be handy, was a complete surprise to his parents. His few friends from college, however, had predicted that eventually the tight-laced young man would fall apart somehow. Someone who knew all the rules of law and society, kept them, fastidiously, and then made up some of his own for good measure, couldn’t be completely right in the head.

New Poem (Finally)

“But I want to run my fingers through it”


Baby
Baby
Our hair wasn’t meant for you to run you your fingers through.
The truth is we got those naps that
catch you that
stop you that
arrest you
Our hair is made to for you to put your hand
in and make you sit down and think
made to draw you in to caress made to
make you slow down and FEEL
where you at and who you with
