I love doing public readings with my fellow teachers from Seattle Arts & Lectures’ Writers-in-the-Schools Program. Going into public schools to teach creative writing is a natural pumice stone to the ego and WITS teachers tend to be the kindest, most generous writers around.

“You stand in a dark room and grow a tree in your chest.
The color pink is your national anthem.
You have fled the burning city, but your pocket smolders.
He bats his eyelids and dust flies.
You are a well trying to quench its own thirst,
a tiger licking its bloody paw.”
Karen Finneyfrock

“Autumn stomps around outside the house
like an annoying little sister, tapping
on all the shutters, kicking up the piles
of leaves you rake, pretending to howl
like a wolf. But I'm glad she's here,
so we can cuss at Summer together,
pretending we don't even remember her name.”
Karen Finneyfrock, The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door

“THE DAY I ALMOST KILLED MYSELF

It was afternoon and the razor
reflected the sky like like a mirror. The bath towels
were white like the bathtub and my wrists
were white like the towels.

The bathwater got lukewarm.
The afternoon turned into late
afternoon and I was still pulling ropes of air
into my lungs like a sailor. The razor reflected
the sunset. The bathwater got cold.

The bath towels were white like the bathtub
and my wrists were white like the towels.”
Karen Finneyfrock, The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door
