Path to Exile

It is a long road.
It has no beginning, no
end...trapped in time, space.

Now, I am nowhere.

Haha, not really. It says that on your main page because you haven't uploaded anything to the Portals or made a news post yet. ;)

Try Again

What does it say to
me that it's hard to scan an
American flag?

Happy Fourth everyone!

The Threshold

Time is symbolic.
It marks a feeling, not a
moment or split second.

Greece is Screwed

It seems as though while
democracy itself dies,
its inventor chokes.

"little girl" is, no?

Was a little me

It's ill-advised for
her to ride in the front seat,
let alone get drunk.

I'm truly sorry you had to go through that.

The physical plane.

String of haikus dedicated to various vegetables:

Carrots

The roar of music,
loud bites, reading the news.
I don't hear her scream.

Asparagus

This spear punctures my
taste buds to death. It's like war:
avoid at all costs.

Tomatoes

Wait...what? Tomatoes
are fruits? I will not stand for
this...this......heresy!

Butternut Squash

My teeth do not bite
down on it. Instead, it bends
to yield to my teeth.

Broccoli

This tree gives life - strong
bones, healthy smiles...as long
as it's soaked in ranch. :)

the courts. It's a long walk back
if you're one of them.
