You will bare scars like lightning bolts on your womb and heart.
You will soak a pink "Women of Steel" t- shirt with your tears.
What you love will sculpt regret.
What you hate will entrance you like Pavlov's chime.
What ignites the flame smothers the light.
What bleeds from the pen bandages the wounds.
If this be your candle, inhale the smoke; let it singe your throat and eyes.

5 Best Things About Me

(Teachers, this is a sample prompt for setting up Scribble routines and to help you get to know your students.)

#1 I'm a nerd.
It's true. I like nerdy things and I'm not afraid to tell the world. I live in Whedonverse and am Whovian. (Not into Harry Potter though.) I read graphic novels. Neil Gaiman is arguably the best writer in America (ironically, he's British). I'm straight-up nerdy. I bleed Tardis blue and I prefer vampires who "help the helpless", not the glittery kind.

#2 I'm a writer. I heart writing, and even though I've had more failures than successes in the publishing world, my confidence never wavers. Besides Stephen King had so many rejection letters that he had to hold them on a bulletin with a railroad spike.

#3 I can still do a back flip on the trampoline. Seriously. I can. I'm in my 30s and can do that! Take that Old Age! I can also still do a back bend but not a back bend walk-over. [sigh].

#4 I can cook.
This is new actually. I didn't used to be able to cook well. I could do the usual: pancakes, cookies, burnt mac & cheese. BUT NOW, I actually own seasonings beyond oregano, and I know what works together. I made dry-rub crock pot chicken yesterday that my kids actually liked.

Not cooked yet, but this is the dry rub.

#5 - my feet. I think they rock.

"Foot-five" with Gavin =)
