I’m the loser but this college town isn’t even awake as I cruise the street that’ll take me to Interstate 380.  

Why can’t I pierce through the trashy feelings about who I am and realize the road I’m taking means more to me than college classes do to the dormant college...

Dear Humans, Androids, and Robots,

A child questions a decision

the busyness

a beehive in their deep minds

Which path will become their map?

Their sky is beyond tree lines, but only one life, not nine

One week into Cool Kids’ Recess—here’s how we’re responding to recess’s most pressing challenges:

1.   Every spider is a Black Widow.
