  • Snow: You called me down?
  • Principal: Yes, have a seat. I just have a few concerns about your lesson plans...particularly about why all of them seem to involve birds.
  • Snow: Isn't it great? They're getting the best bird-based education in the country.
  • Principal: How could you possibly know that?
  • Snow: By the time they graduate, they'll be fluent in 12 dialects of sparrow.
  • Principal: How about a language actually in the curriculum like Spanish or French?
  • Snow: Sparrow is very useful!

  • Snow: Were you about to say "the real world"?
  • Principal: I'll see myself out.
And I realized—I realized how badly I’d been treated before, if my standards had become so low. If the freedom I’d been granted felt like a privilege and not an inherent right.

Double Standards

I See You Babe, But We Are Both Blind

Face to Face

Your Lips On Mine

Of Wolves and Ravens


One night. In that one night, I remembered a lot of things. Let’s see, I remember how the dim orange lights of the industrial bar embraced you, every lift and slope of your face, how the moon loved the upturn of your lips. There were also your eyes, narrow and cold. Your eyelashes too, how they fanned out against your skin. There were your hands, long and cold, bony. But, you had nails. I still have the trailing marks running down my back.

And there was your voice, god, your voice. How could I leave you after hearing it in my ear?
