Possessed

   Robert Frost: The Road Not Taken Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth. Then took the other, as just Read more…

Enjoy-One Day

The office, this gray asylum Peace Caterin chose to be a part of, was an abomination. She watched and despised the normals who worked here day after day, year after year, never shooting for anything greater-accepting this hollow eyed world and rejecting those who didn’t. She’d been here three years Read more…

The Section

I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with the African American Literature section at the bookstore. On the one hand, I can see how beneficial it is but on the other, I see it as a way to hide books. How often do people who aren’t black browse that section?  Most Read more…
