a thank you

to all the fat kids in america. without you, i wouldn't be able to find clothes at thrift stores.

keep on eating, kiddos!

vegan crush

totes cute, eh?


a found poem

Under the Big Top


The boldly lettered
and vividly colored
posters shout!

Come see:
death-defying acts,
the slapstick antics
of the clowns,
and brave animal trainers
taming wild beasts.

The smells, sounds,
pageantry, glitter
and romantic fa├žade
of the circus

have captivated
young and old alike
for generations.

The realities of
This so-called

reveal a litany of

and abuse.

sea carrot [revised]

Sea Carrot

I have mistaken the tides for my mother:

Propped on all fours, scrubbing the
kitchen floor to an iridescent gleam.
The chirping gulls and seashell clatters
distract my thoughts of Mop and Glo.

The ceaseless arm sweeps and waxes
my tip-toed imprints; destroying any evidence
of adolescent crimes that may or may not
have been committed.

I scavenge for souvenirs: mollusks,
sea dollars, morsels of plankton;
but the water’s obsessive-compulsiveness
sanitizes faster than I can fill my bucket.

I’ve spotted a blemish! Kneecaps coiled
like bedsprings jolt towards the poorly
buried treasure. My vegetarian eyes
blink and roar in hunger.

I question the forces--Why discard this
sea-grown delicacy? Fixating upon Miss Luna
for an explanation, she simply replies
with a crescent-shaped smirk.

Heaved from the carnivorous tide,
the sea carrot mopes in a mixture
of vomit and salty saliva. My mouth
will surely lodge its ill-green root.

Tin Can Telephone

I rummage through mountains
of tin cans that pile outside the
doorstep. Their empty bodies dented
because mom can only afford discounts.

I find Campbell’s but it’s too savory
and I’ve never fancied green beans.
I sift and sort until the tangy, mildewed
scent of peaches catches my eye.

You’re exquisite! Round like the silver
moon and label still intact:

Halved Golden Peaches.

I dare not rinse your sticky remnants
before I cup you to my
impatient ear.

Oh how the sweet syrup rings
of her voice.

8 hours in a dentist chair is hell.

Carnivorous Sea

Tides have vomited
and left you moping in a
puddle of salty
saliva. My mouth will lodge
your ill-green root, sea carrot.

foto props to m.j.

the helpless cries of steamed milk

are disturbed by
and firm handshakes.

I grasp your
glazed, ceramic hand
and pull it
towards my lips.

I sip you then
thank you
for your warmth
and my escape.

wrote that little ditty in toronto. that's right, CANADA!!!

ps. happy cinco de mayo!
