Adventure Time: Brand New Year and MoSex

Alright, so I sort of hinted that I am on a New Year = NEW ME sort of kick, like everyone else. The difference is I have been reading waaaaaaay too much depressing shit + self-help stuff. Let’s rewind back to the beginning of December (which you all know nothing about because I fell off the…

Hello Personal Fulfillment

Hello Personal Fulfillment, I hope you receive this letter, I can’t seem to find your address and no one else seems to know exactly how to find you. There are a bunch of greasy snake oil salespeople running around waving your address in the air, but whenever I look closely, they’re all fake. It seems to…

Silver Hairs

Silver hairs curl up around his dark brown cornrows that are shot through with silver as well. A black earwarmer headband covers just the tops of his ears. The young child next to him offers him a bite of her breakfast sandwich and he accepts. Black beads from the bottoms of his cornrows lay lightly…

True, Blue, Miniature New Yorker

He’s a true, blue, miniature New Yorker. Tucked inside his coat’s hood is is a Captain America sweatshirt hood with a big white A in the middle of its forehead and the wings on either side. It has eye-holes in it so I can only assume that when it is pulled up he becomes a…

Faded Jacket

Converse-esque shoes, non-descript blue jeans and a black messenger bag between his legs. A green Henley that is buttoned all the way up except for the top button. A black jacket that looks like it could be Carhart from how durable it appears. The black is fading to white along the seams and it can…

Corduroy Pants

Puke brown corduroy pants that make my stomach churn with the memory of the feeling and sound of two corduroy-encased thighs rubbing against each other. Red sneaker-shoes with thin grey socks bridging the gap between the shoes and pants. He is wearing a fawn colored newspaper boy-esque cap with black, rectangular, thick, plastic rimmed glasses….

Gold Studs

She has round gold studs in her ears that remind me of my first pair of earrings. They are the kind of studs they put through your earlobe with the gun at Claire’s while you’re sitting in a window, holding a stuffed animal and crying. She is wearing dark blue converse and and blue jeans….

Baby Michelle was Melodramatic

It’s Poetry Tuesday! We are going to go back through all my old notebooks and look at the god-awful poetry I wrote when I was an angsty teen and then you will get present day Michelle’s re-interpretation/headdesk horror-filled embarrassment. Deep Down He didn’t mean it Defenses rise Out fly lies Why do I do this?…

Some Days

Some days you wake up and get on the subway already angry with the world. You are tired from a long week/weekend/day/night so you get on and you are already done with everyone around you. You look at a rabbi sitting down reading the Torah, flanked by a black woman and a hispanic woman and…

Baby Michelle was Melodramatic

It’s Poetry Tuesday! We are going to go back through all my old notebooks and look at the god-awful poetry I wrote when I was an angsty teen and then you will get present day Michelle’s re-interpretation/headdesk horror-filled embarrassment. Darkness Darkness, It’s pressing in Suffocating Devastating It surrounds me as I fall Down Down to…

Photo Booth Technician

The man next to me looks like the photo booth technician from Amélie and he is watching Mr. Robot on his tablet – season one episode two. He has a bandaid on the middle knuckle of his middle finger on his left hand. He is not wearing the bright red converse of the movie character, but…

Adventure Time CNY

Yuuuuup! It was back to Central New York again this past weekend! This time it was not for hotshop fun times, graduations, or camping, it was for my cousin’s bridal shower! I even left behind Brazilian Helicopter Pilot so that I could help my mom handle everything. I got in late Thursday night and had a…
