JUDITH JARVIS’ DEFENSE OF ABORTION, SUMMARILY.

During my freshman year in the university, I took a core course (General Studies – Values of Health and Sickness) with a module on the defense and opposition of abortion. Abortion is a controversial subject that often leaves the overly religious and cultural on the opposition, free-thinkers on the defense, and indecisive humans dangling somewhere …

SONG OF HOPE

You are the snuff your mother sniffs when life taunts her nostrils. When your feral father appears at dusk to perform a rite at the junction of her loins, You are the spell that rolls of her tongue into the air to become a whirlwind that casts him out of her home. You- a strip …

SADNESS SUN-DRIED 

It would be an exaggeration to say the news of the industrial action was more shocking than 50 volts of electricity jolting one’s body, but the surprise was mortifying.

Home knows every nook, held your hand as you broke  and gave way to crannies.  Home has sickle for walking stick,  builds an excuse around your glassiness- says he’s scared of tripping and landing  on one of those jagged edges of yours. * Waves of distrust cascaded over his loyalty- he gives no hint that …

BLOATED 

​ Cut. Some hoarse voice soused in fatigue, I anticipate its saying it. This scene I didn’t rehearse before acting, these lines I read out of a slipping-into-numbness-where in my head.   They’ve forgotten about a break. Well I need a break. Whoever they -director- are.

MIRAGE 

You will look for me everywhere- places I can’t be reached- because everywhere is only where your eyes can behold, but I am everywhere, like air, and beyond these wheres, and like air your eyes can’t behold me. Your eyes will take on searchlight for lens, your body rubbing against luminescence to hitch a bit …
