music can take us places. back to a first kiss at a school dance, a breakup in college, the first dance st your wedding. music has been there for all of our best and worst moments.

music is the soundtrack to our life. when you read through some of your poems do you hear a particular song or a little bit of classical music playing in the background? perhaps a piece of music has been the inspiration for a poem or story.

take a moment during your routine and reflect on the music playing, even if it’s in your head. let music inspire you today. maybe write a little tune yourself.

* from “Hey, Nineteen” by Steely Dan (1980)

hot july night by eric short

In your bed, pretending to sleep, secretly counting fan blades like flower petals, wondering He loves me, He loves me not, He loves me. Thank god there are five.

I remember dressing up as Salvador Dali for a Carnival parade at school somewhere between 2009 and the end of my teenage years.   My young face, rounder than it

The End by Marlee Head

Grief is the silence that burdens the sound — one house, two homes two minds, the bones of all that hurts and remains.   The moon is hung with echoes
