julia sent me a video of my cats. she knew i missed them.  i ran up to the computer lab to watch it but my college roommates were already there, in my account, playing it before i even had a chance to see it.  they were oblivious to boundaries and expected privacy and didn’t understand […]

i move into a different apartment. this one is in a high-rise. in the hallway going to the elevator i see amanda.  she’s calling for help because a man is in her apartment in the same building.  she says she was trying to be nice but he won’t leave and she doesn’t want to be […]

screaming behind me to my ex that he has to leave me alone now. everyone knows it.  i have important work to do and it doesn’t involve him.  it’s dark. the streets are stone and narrow.  i’m moving a chair on wheels.  i’m going to do laundry.  when i get to the building i go […]

The place was unfinished and dusty but a group of friends were living there already and quite settled.  Every door was shut in the building.  White doors with raw wood frames.  White drywall not yet primed at my sides and bare bulbs above.  At the right bottom corner of every door a place was carved out […]

we were in a square concrete room, white light entering from outside through windows without glass in them.  gary and ben were putting a lot of work into the place, cleaning it up, painting the walls of the hallway (which we had helped with).  “when will it be yours?” i asked.  they weren’t sure.  the […]
