(I just needed to write. I am not a fiction writer, but sometimes prompts just speak to us) The first time they met was in a New York City taxi. Both had snuggled on a plane from Doha and both wanted to continue to snuggle in the back seat. He grabbed her around her shoulders and she buried her head...

#2 A bronze arch etches its way across shadow stubble into a pocketed petal that you refused to shave. Outside the window dawn is breaking just below the ruffle cross-stitched curtain and I see your gray eye in hollowed cumulus clouds. Trying to force myself to write even if it is just ok.

The Current Poet--My New Project (Need your support)

Fellow Wordtrippers, I have been dreaming about what type of poetry would be the topic of the first book that I will attempt to publish. It has finally come to me and it combines many of my passions.

Thank you Mlou. To me being anti-poetry is alien so I thought it would be appropriate for this challenge. I sat down with my best friend by the bell tower today and we read poetry to calm down. Our professor thought it was hilarious we used poetry to calm down.
I am excellent, how are you?

Four months later: While in New York I got to read an original poem at the UN Global Launch for the International Year of Youth. There is a recording floating around online. I started my Junior year here in Bham and I am staying super busy but hoping to add some of my new work here at Wordtrip. I ne...

My playful try at number three. Anti-Poetry I’ve always wanted to have a way with words similar to the intercourse between nerds. Where looks are set aside and true love resides.

May 09, 2009 was the exact date that I last posted to wordtrip and since then a lot has taken place in my life. I am still an English major at BSC and will be a junior, but this past year was awarded a pretty nice creative writing scholarship for being a "renegade poet." I do too much on campus, but...

Thanks Delaney! I really do appreciate the feedback. I tend to get that I am over descriptive at times, which I find funny because it is similar to my personality. I just realized that I should have probably provided a little more context surrounding the poem. The original assignment was to use a wo...

I call it a burning bush of a bar because it is an allusion to the biblical burning bush. I wanted to create the contrast of a bar as a religious setting. I don't know if that makes sense, but that's what I was trying to create. Their brands of Sharpie refers to the permanent markings on the teenage...

It is so nice to hear from y'all. My mom came into town today for Parent Weekend. College is quite a journey. I am keeping myself busy and a member of the Poetry Circle, which is a ton of fun. I have a poetry slam coming up soon in our coffee shop, it should be fun. And I will post some of my writing.

My opinion is I just read an entire chapter of How to Run a Traditional Jewish Household in Hebrew Bible class on when sex should be avoided and got way too much detail on the process of a woman's need to cleanse herself after her period and all the stuff in between. I had to instigate class discuss...
