Pieces of Paper

Pieces of paper scattered on the floor – reminders that haunt me of all life was before… before your life was done – barely just begun.

You take me out to dinner buy me tickets to the show. And anyplace you take me is a place I wanna go. Everytime you touch me I can feel it in my soul. There’s unspoken words between us. Could you already know?

This House

“Abandoned Farmhouse” photographed by Lisa Moore December 17th, 2012

Another day is done and gone and you’re still not here. I’m still thinking that it’s wrong for you to be not here with me. Time is cruel it just moves on. Yet here I am standing still on the Wheel of Time – where you were mine and you were alive with light in your eyes. But now you’ve gone and I’m alone. This house is not a home now that you’ve gone.

Can I kiss you?

Can I kiss you 2The Age of Consent

By Jacqueline Dotzenrod

Part One – “Can I Kiss You?”

Scene One

Scene opens on Jocelyn and Amanda in their dorm room. The room is half-unpacked with boxes strewn about the space. Both sides are symmetrical – each having a twin-size bed, desk, and chair with a communal desk in between. A rotary telephone is sitting on the center desk. The girls enter, Amanda’s arms full of t-shirts, a frisbee, travel mug, credit card applications, and miscellaneous flyers for various campus events.

Suffering with grace

Just One Take

flowerOne of my favorite spiritual leaders growing up was a priest named Father Jim. I believe he came to our small-town parish in the mid- to late 90s – I remember being about 12 years of age. I didn’t realize what a big deal it was at the time, but mine was the first CCD class where both the boys and the girls were trained to be altar attendants.*

My sister, brother, and I all served at mass dozens of times – probably hundreds if you were to tally up the instances between the three of us. As a child and even as a teenager, I probably didn’t fully appreciate the role I played as an altar attendant. Regardless, I think it was important as a young person for me to understand that a religious community – just like any other community – has jobs that need done and members…

Never trust a man named Lance

272I dated a man named Lance once. That was a mistake – one I will not soon (or hopefully, ever) repeat. He was selfish in bed, finished too fast, and when another pussy he thought was hotter came along he offered to put me on hold until she moved out of state. I told him “no” and that I would not wait for him on the back-burner while he fucked someone else.

On being “lucky”

I am a survivor.

I have survived not one – but two sexual assaults.

I have survived the loss of my babies, Alexandra and Frances.

I have survived the loss of dear friends Dustin and Jennifer.

I’ve also survived three car crashes, four job losses, and high school.

Yet, I still consider myself a “lucky” survivor of sexual assault.
