As I sat in the Atlantic parking lot flipping through a book and my most recent Snap Chat stories, I noticed something neon yellow from the corner of my eye- the ticket patrol man.

"I’ll Wait for You"
I’ll wait for you every day
And feel the earth turn
Beneath the pale moonlight
And through the forest of fern
I’ll wait for you on the cliffs
When the rocks have fallen away
I’ll wait for you in the dark
After the death of day
I’ll wait for you by the sea

I wrote this poem about being on your own in college composed entirely of phrases copied and pasted from Yelp reviews of Forever 21.
Can’t find anything here. Maybe it’s hidden.
I am BROWSING. I am not lost. I am not a puppy or a child.
If you know exactly what you want, you’re in trouble.

As I am still digesting the first presidential debate, the memes, the gifs and overall comedic parody of who will run our nation next; I wonder, why am I even voting?

Let’s talk about memes.
At the word, people either roll their eyes with a groan, or produce a sly smirk and make a comment stolen from some social media site (I find myself to be the latter). But the fact of the matter is, memes, or just Internet culture in general, has wormed its way into...

Uprooted my roots
Uprooted my roots,
They were never ending
My mind took one wrong turn
And then I bended
My creativity extended
Became opened and then intruded
Results in an illusion
That my soul...
