Natural Deaths

The universe is dying. A study of galaxies has shown that new galaxies produce less energy than older galaxies. Around half of what the older galaxies used to produce. Older stars are fading faster than new ones are made. Everything is expanding. Drifting apart. These are scientific facts. As above, so below. Where it used […]

The Nose Knows

So I let my mother drag me to an an aunt and uncle’s golden wedding anniversary. I picked a dress for her some days ago when we went to the city and my mother being quite the drama queen, cried when I offered to pay for it. Now you know where I got that from. […]

Shipping Out, Sailing In.

The Physics of a Broken Heart

It is Damp. And he tries to make out what is written in that wet notebook. The ink is smudged, the lines too, the edges torn. But he can’t. So he closes his eyes and remembers. There’s nothing original about that walk in the rain. Water seeks its level. Tears, rain, beer. They’ll mix where […]

putting it all together (again)

for sheer lack of luck

originally posted on fb on Wednesday, October 5, 2011 at 3:31am People have complained about this and they probably will for as long as there are people. You meet someone you like. Someone you are so excited about. Someone you think you could love. Someone you know you could love. Yey for you. Then you […]
