Bits & Bones

The Sounds Inside Myself

Prose and existentialism

I liked hearing every bit of myself
in the quiet of a long night
spent sitting at my computer, drinking.

Jaw scrapping,
Heart beating,
Lungs expanding
that I wished
never expelled.




Bits & Bones is a collection of self reflection and expression. A mix of personal experiences, creative nonfiction and prose to move, break, and expose a soul.
