Lara Dances

  I’d moved to Yakima, Washington, in the summer of 2001. My life changed when I met this girl—a sweet girl at first—cute enough. Beautiful enough to marry. Lara got pregnant, and I did the right thing and asked her to marry me. No, not just because of the baby but because of her motherlyContinue reading “Lara Dances”

The Diner

I’m sitting over coffee and the New York Times spread before me. My glasses rest on the edge of my nose. “What can I get for you, sir?” a waitress says. “Just more coffee,” I say and gave her a smile. “Coffee it is,” she says. She pours more and I catch her nametag: JessicaContinue reading “The Diner”

Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

I put it on all my dating profiles: I don’t date conservatives; if you’re a conservative, swipe left. It’s nothing personal; I mean, my entire family is filled with conservatives.

Blue Lake (Jenna’s Clothes)

Jenna wasn’t in the living room, and the car (my car) was gone. Blue Lake was our hideout. It was our getaway — a place whereContinue reading “Blue Lake (Jenna’s Clothes)”

The Girl Next Door (Inside Me)

It was the fall of 1996 when we broke up. She said she kissed another guy and told me how I didn’t mean much to her, anyway. I slammed our pictures to the ground, shattering glass, the frame and all. I’d stopped short of setting the clothes she bought me over the years ablaze. GodContinue reading “The Girl Next Door (Inside Me)”

Chewed Gum Stuck To Her Shoe (Stupid Me)
