    I'm in the big fancy house my husband bought.   I grew up with 6 siblings and several dogs running about.  Meat wasn't on the menu daily or weekly but we worked in the garden during the summer and at times my parents would send us to Kentucky to my Grandma's farm...

    Isolation

    I see something sad. Something I'm a part of. Maybe you are too. I lift the sheets in the morning, eyes that have just begun to focus lead me to this box.  My fingers like homing pigeons know just where to perch to connect me to the rest of the world...

    This Place Is A Black Hole.

    I see my mother in the living room. A computer in her lap, a huge tv with Glenn Beck yelling about some clusterf**ck he didn't even google. I see a forest i ride by everyday on the way to work being chopped down so someone can keep their house. I see my boss frantically trying to...
