[Marriage] is more like a partnership formed to run a very small, mundane, and often boring nonprofit business. And I mean this in a good way." - from the article 'Marry Him!: The case for settling for Mr. Good Enough' by Lori Gottlieb, The Atlantic, March 2008.

"Sometimes lost is where you have to be..." - Battlestar Galactica, final season, "Someone To Watch Over Me"

Cover letter received from a journalism student applying for my company's internship program. We ended up taking him in anyway, just for shit and giggles. Good times.

Lost Hours
by Ashley D. Faulkner
2006 Grand Prize Winner @ poetry.com

Your watch stopped forty-five minutes after you died.
Years later I brought it from that shallow drawer
where the futile artifacts resided (donor card,
wallet with petrol receipts, driving cap to hide no hair),
and placed it on my wrist, forced to adjust the link;
unlike you, I have yet to be eaten. Then I waited,
hoping that with each stride I took, with a pulse,
the innards would be granted energy and stir.

In the morning I woke to no change, shaking hard,
willing it on; next seated with mother in a repair shop,
terse glances at the work room. The attendant
returned it with a frown, even a look of hostility,
confirming that it was beyond repair, that somehow
the coils and springs had been wrenched inside-out,
and what precise, violent change of atmosphere
had afflicted me, pulverizing each mechanism clear?

I hurried home, cradled that unresponsive metal in my palms,
awed by the tumultuousness of your passing--
how, so trapped in bed, you struggled within
and sundered time to the anger of leaving us alone.

Regarding Tiberius. And, oh, the rest of 'em, too. Note: as a trekker, I'm not all that impressed...


How do you fall in love - and let go? Spotty movie, at best. Fav movie line: "Being sweet doesn't cut it." (Syamil should listen to this advice..)
