I make you end the call

PROMPT: Unconventional

in spite of
the desperation of
your written word, you have nothing
to say
to me.
.
for the first time in my life I
make no motion
to fill these empty minutes
I listen to your silence,
and
.

I make you end the call

Does August See Me?

PROMPT: Impermanence

I am from, inspired by George Ella Lyon

PROMPT: Where I'm From

I am from a wicked thing
our bushes hungry, so often trimmed
that they from spite would never bloom
instead, with thorns, they skinned my shins
I am from the landing of
twin staircases, steep ways down

built by my father the summer before,
one within another, looking like trim
so my sister and I could not capture each...

A Thousand Open Doors

PROMPT: Five Beginnings

    In the house by the meadow, there were a thousand open doors. 

    I looked out into the blackness of a nocturnal sea. It took me a moment to realize the glint that I saw was from more than my lantern. Something was looking back.

PROMPT: Paint Swatch

I love how you chose to give your colors unique names instead of only using portmanteaus of other words.

how this summer will taste

PROMPT: Improbable Flavor

    Although spring blossoms still welcome themselves to the threshold of my porch, I believe that I know what this summer will taste like. The rich char of a bonfire will cling to the inside of my teeth. Lime popsicles will dance across my tongue. The salt of the sea will wash in with the rain, and pine will taste solemn, like old love.
