    Sweet Valentine

    by

    When his sunset appears in her timeline

    It’s sunrise on her horizon

    The very spark that fills her heart

    A light through the day, before chimera enlightens the dark

    Her yearning for belonging

    A place in his arms, the look in his eyes

    To be her home

    Her paradise

    with …

    Exaggerated Yelp Reviews as Writing Prompts

    by

    A conversation with a colleague today got me thinking about engagement. Or rather disengagement of staff and students. It’s a pretty solid and straight forward framework for the continuous improvement of instruction. However, it also happens to be a framework that can feel like an assembly line at times. Prepare …

    The Apocalypse is Here

    by

    I’m all alone.

    My companion has not returned as he has a million times before. Something is wrong. My dad put me in this cold place underground and left me here. He gave me some pets, told me he would be right back.

    That was when the big explosion happened.…

    My New Friend

    by

    My new friend and I met in an ally way. I found this innocent pup beaten and battered, so I nursed him back to health. He did nothing to be treated this way, but I’m glad I was able to find him. We were now both orphans, lucky to find …

    Another Perfect Day

    by

    As I sit on my porch, I am watching the snow blow with the breeze. The slight changes in the direction and power of which the snow blows intrigues me. The flakes themselves are massive, indicating the temperature must be at or above freezing.

    The grass peaks ever so slightly …

    Who Inspires You

    By: R.M. Giles

    I did not lose my great-grandmother. I have no memories of her. She was a particularly unkind woman from many accounts. Vicious, even, at times. She would be disappointed in me, thoroughly. Both for a lack of Catholic devotion, as well as a surplus of queer behavior. …

    Leonard Cohen – Poem (Full Employment p 27 Flame)

    by

    I see you in the windows
    that open so wide
    there’s nothing beyond them,
    and nothing inside.

    You take off your sandals
    you shake out your hair,
    your beauty dismantled
    and worn everywhere.

    The story’s been written.
    The letter’s been sealed.
    You gave me a lily,
    but now I have …

    Improved Offline Publishing

    The best technology is invisible and reliable. You almost forget it’s there, because things just work. Bad technology never disappears into the background — it’s always visible, and worse, it gets in your way. We rarely stop to think “My, what good Wifi!” But we sure notice when the Wifi …
