She sipped furiously at her iced green tea, the sharp tang of lemon assaulting her tongue, but she paid no mind.
“Are you back on Earth yet, or,” Joshua trailed off lightly, twirling idly at the plastic straw of his thai milk tea.
“Depends, has Earth finally created a pathway to heaven?” she exhaled, nibbling at the edge of her straw. “Because that girl is practically a Goddess.”
In the middle of the student center entrance, stood Vernon and yet another girl. Not that she was counting (two in the past week) but this new one was so frustratingly good looking, coupled by the fact that he was so frustratingly good looking as well. Together they were incredibly beautiful. She had meticulously dyed ash blonde hair, with her roots freshly treated and her style had that lowkey “City Swag” vibe Vernon was crazy about. In other words, the perfect girl.

10. Rich kids bragging on social media, such as Instagram, are unwittingly providing incriminating evidence for prosecutors about their parents’ fraud schemes. Cyber-security firms say they have been using social media evidence to nail fraud and assets in up to 75 percent of their cases.
9. The city of Vernon, Florida has been nicknamed “nub city” because so many residents have intentionally amputated limbs, disguising the injury as an accident, as a means of insurance fraud. One man had 25+ open insurance policies and collected over $1,000,000 after amputating his left foot.
8. Ruby Bridges, the first black child to attend a white school in the south, attended class by herself because parents of white students would not let them learn with her and had to be guarded by U.S. Marshalls because she received death threats on a daily basis.
7. When a coal mine catches fire, it burns for decades or even centuries. There are thousands of these fires across the world at any given moment.
In Houston, the empty sky looks more threat than promise.
The city left the light on for you but
the stars have never come knocking.
And the moon is a bashful stranger
who keeps his distance.
In Houston, the sky looked as lonely as I felt:
all questions, all heartache,
all the hungry parts we didn’t want to look at.
On the long road to New Mexico
we stared down a storm at high noon:
drove into it, like crawling into the mouth of heaven–
caught between a hurricane and a sunset
until the desert dropped away and we were left
with a kingdom of clouds in half-light.
Until there was nothing but lightning in the rear view mirror.
Until the stars.
Until the stars.
And my inner city soul
had never known starlight
and suddenly the world was broader
than it had ever been–
broader than 21 years of heartache.
Suddenly there was no such thing as lonely, anymore.
And all the parts of my childhood
that didn’t do right by me
crawled up into my throat and
dug their elbows into each other’s ribs and
fought to see the starlight.
And they fell in love with something past
the last breath of atmosphere,
something that goes on
for the closest thing to forever
we know how to measure.
