Candy

So soft and sweet and supple in shapes like fruits and candies, that’s what girls are. Their lips coated in shiny gloss that tastes like cherries and skin so creamy and smooth. Soft petals of roses, lilies and daffodils. Tulips, violets and gardenias. Girls are precious, edible packages in all sizes and colors. The curve … More Candy

Kruger Park

Picture a park, any park. Maybe the one you grew up with down the street or the one next to your elementary school. It consists of a vast grassy field with trees scattered here and there in many different shapes and sizes. There is a basketball court that’s rusted all over and the nets torn … More Kruger Park
