A Day in the Life: A Poem from a San Antonio Airport

A week to rebuild pillars Marble reveries and mortar tears Create a new foundation Still flimsy From fracturing Yet stronger From being tempered In the heat Of overpriced Tex-Mex And the warm sting Of bourbon Soon to be quenched In the cold embrace Of home

A Day in the Life: A Poem from a San Antonio Air BnB

The sign on the toilet says Not to flush the toilet paper But to throw it in the trash instead I flush it just the same In order there is anarchy Distress And the trash The cause of my anxiety Shall instead be a receptacle for my discontent For in order there is distress Anarchy … Continue reading A Day in the Life: A Poem from a San Antonio Air BnB

A Day in the Life: Nocturnal Struggles

There are many things in this world that I'm not particularly great at. Cutting in a straight line, for example. I had a kindergarten teacher back in the day who took such umbrage at my inability to snip along a straight, perforated line that she attempted to hold me back for a year, such that … Continue reading A Day in the Life: Nocturnal Struggles

A Day in the Life: A “Literal” Day

After a few weeks of waxing poetic on the wildly uninteresting inadequacies in my life, I've come to the realization that I've never actually detailed a full *Typical* day in my life.

It's like only looking at photos from that trip you took last … Continue reading A Day in the Life: A “Literal” Day

A Day in the Life: The Last Unicorn (Tom Talks Books ep. 1)

To which I say, … Continue reading A Day in the Life: The Last Unicorn (Tom Talks Books ep. 1)

A Day in the Life: Taco Bell

I am a generally healthy person. I sleep the doctor-recommended 3.5 hours per night, only consume alcohol before, with, and after meals, and over the last year have only been diagnosed with five *very small* (yet deeply related) medical issues. I usually remember to eat every day, and drink more than enough water to stave … Continue reading A Day in the Life: Taco Bell

A Day in the Life: Living Alone

During my freshman year of college, I lived in a dormitory with an old high school friend. For the sake of anonymity, we'll call him "Jeremy". Jeremy was an all-around solid dude. Sure, he never gave me any free wontons or egg rolls despite being the son of local Chinese restauranteurs; and yeah, he made … Continue reading A Day in the Life: Living Alone
