Cut It Out When I get this way, the way I always get, all I can see are the cracks. The cracks in my perceived reality, the one that is not shared with the rest of the world. My own personal slice of existence. Cut It Out I look forward […]
I sit with my back flush against a red brick building, my eyes closed. I feel the wind caressing my unshaven face. I hear it rustle the leaves of the nearby trees, soft and then strong, the trees making beautiful music as the wind changes speed. I could be in […]
