We could talk all night, 

Babe give up this fight, 

We’re gonna work things through, 

But nothing’s perfect. 

Talking after wine, 

The cheapest we can buy, 

Saying things we should’ve said, 

Long before we actually did. 

Smiling but we’re close to tears. 

It’s been many years, 

But we’re meeting for the first time.

We could talk all night, 

Babe, give up this fight.

I’ve lost my job, 

There’s bills to pay. 

They only give unemployment, 

In the longest line. 

I’m wasting time, but we need to pay rent, 

And your upset at me again. 

Smiling but we’re close to tears. 

It’s been many years, 

But we’re meeting for the first time. 

——

We could talk all night, 

Babe give up this fight. 

My prides wounded, 

And we need healing.

It hurts me now to see you cry, 

Don’t know what to do, 

When everything’s insane in life, 

I just kiss your lips and hope. 

Smiling but we’re both close to tears. 

It’s been many years, 

But we’re meeting for the first time.

Sunday Photo Fiction: Alphas Are Fearless.


A Mixed Bag 2014

” I’m not crawling in there Julia,”  Kristen stammered.

“Well Kristen, it’s your final challenge as a pledge and you will become a member of the Alpha Sorority House if you stay in that sewer pipe five-minutes.” Julia said snidely.

“If you don’t want to be an Alpha, that’s cool too. Maybe, I was wrong when I thought you’d be a good fit. Alpha’s aren’t afraid. We’re fearless! So are you going to climb into that pipe or not Kristen?” 

Kristen bit her lower lip. She knew she looked nervous and didn’t want to appear weak infront of Julia.”It’s just that it’s a sewage pipe Julia. I don’t want fecal matter all over me.” 

Julia was exasperated. ” You can have a hot shower when we get back to the house. When I was a pledge it was much harder to get into Alpha. I had to stay blindfolded in the woods all night with duck tape over my mouth. Do you want to do that? Or do you want to crawl in a sewer pipe for five-minutes and be done with these silly initiation rituals?”

Kristen looked at Julia who was smiling at her with malice. Was this worth the hazing for her to fulfill her teenage dream of becoming part of the Alpha Sorority House at her university? Kristen wasn’t so sure.
