I personally find "romantic" relationships in literature to be illogical and disturbingly destructive for the individuals involved. Don't get me wrong, I'm a sucker for a love story, but rarely do I read about romantic relationships that are realistic. I much prefer those relationship bonds between generations of women--between best friends and even strangers.(less)

“I am grief in a fleshy package, love in its human form. I am woman.”
Samantha Manuel, Bone House

“The trouble with grilled cheeses and tears is that they burn so easily.”
Samantha Manuel, Bone House

“Remember kindergarten? We had our own cubbyholes filled with blankies, supplies, and most likely clean undies for when we peed ourselves. Those belongings are somewhat irrelevant to this poem, but this IS a poem about a cubbyhole. A poet's cubbyhole.”

“I watched as the flames engulfed the wood, licking at the bark like serpents tongues and charring stray fibers instantly with a hot crackle. Amber sparks jumped up and out of the stone encasement, dancing through the air until they gave up their last glimmer and dissipated into invisible ash. . . perhaps we were stoking an inferno, and like those fiery particles, we would soon vanish, left nowhere. A cold chill crept its way up my spine and I shuddered.”
Samantha Manuel, Revelation

“And this is how it ends. For all of you.' My whisper was almost inaudible. Taking the blades firmly in my hand, I began to hack away at the flesh of his throat, sawing ravenously. The body began to convulse and he unsuccessfully tried to claw at me. But something happened then that surprised me, and I could tell it was wholly unintentional. In fact, he may have been desperately trying to hide it.”
