She had never considered herself the kind who would fight over a boy. Why would she? There were plenty of boys out there. The trick was in picking the right one. Then getting them to stay.

Do you want to know what the title was going to be? Well here is another poem to usher us into … Continue reading Free verse.
Disclaimer; Despite the title, the bulk of this writing will not contain any expletives. I have been thinking of conversations. Having them, starting them, sustaining them, ending them. And not just doing them, but doing them right. Conversations that are not waited on by awkward silences and where gossip is not the main course. Where … Continue reading Talk %#*@? to me!
