I made my move to the front of the bus. The coaches on my right and left. Seniors just a few rows back ready to shit on me. I took a breath. "One thing, I don't know why," I began in my best Mike Shinoda rendition, and proceeded to shred that verse, each...

The pundits seem convinced that it is an "embarrassing" add-on to the game, but we asked a few soccer fans the question "how bad is biting in football" and came up with some different responses. Have a look...

Here’s a man, I see him often,

who works the counter at the market,

with shaky hands

a jailhouse tat on his thumb muscle,

a shaved head.

Sometimes he likes to pace,

but rarely likes to talk.

He just scans those barcodes with

his trembling hands,

the glimmer gone out of him.

A stretch of blacktop

Vast as desert expanding into dreamshape,

Junk oil and rust seep into open veins,

It pulses and grows, an unpuddle, 

But not fluid,

Who first laid these foundations at the foothills,

Left little room for the brush; 

The hot wind sweeps over, paper cup d...

You fainted on the Priest—the choir stopped mid-hymnal to watch,

Observe your passing, like a blind boy trying to make a tack...

some of us decided to spend the last night on earth

   at the yoga studio

Shari and Anu ran the session together

   and they didn’t even need to turn on the heat

   the world was burning from coast to mountain

they wore their clearest voices and best robes

a hundred pin-up women were executed

on the beach

in a dream I had

instagram models in flawless bodies

staring towards the sea

I couldn’t see their faces, only the red holes

in their spines as a rifle echoed

the girl in the white one piece with perfect shoulders

falling funny...

We watch the sickness tide down the interstate, 

  Through borders, county lines, 

Watch it hit the college kids, the waiters in Boston, 

    Ski boys in Vermont, farmers in the Berkshires, 

The thing about contagion: not long before everyone knows
