Named for the famous line in Brian DePalma’s rendition of Carrie, this theme will take a look at anxiety, vouyerism, and fear of judgement as well as unconventional pieces (poetry, short dramedies, prose)  by our favorite stand-up comedians.

I want to mention that we have a lot of cool stuff for this collection including several of

Louis C.K.’s early short films!

Melt in My Memories

“Remember, remember, this is now, and now, and now. Live it, feel it, cling to it. I want to become acutely aware of all I’ve taken for granted”

All of You, Always

by meaghanmerrifield

499358_12177750_b

freckled sunlight flits through the waking waters

swimming swells and blushing waves

flushed with morning heat

implode in a froth at my feet

rapturously

recede

Steadily it Goes

by meaghanmerrifield

372230_14681780_b

the spiraling scarlet

deepens and darkens

with the aging day

swollen

susceptible

steadily swooping decay

breathes faint

drip from molding mouths

in an echo

that unintentionally spills out

it blows through the blood

and rattles the ribs

settles tenderly underfoot

as the light creeps to a dim

Devoid Dessert

by meaghanmerrifield

522134_11048059_b

 pastel painted lips

part without purpose

 others drink

they sip

sleepily

slender fingers swirl silky locks

lean limbs fold and uncross

 doe-eyes

distant

find fulfillment in candy-coated confetti caresses

Mind’s Eye

by meaghanmerrifield

1162889_1212262_b

the mind’s ever-discerning eye

watch

as it wanders around

bodies

unbound

leave the lazy ground

from the tops of toes

above humidity’s hum

fruit flows

from consciousness’s stream

heavy heads open and fall

legs

step in

to let

eyes

look out
