Stana: Hi guys! We did this challenge because so many of our friends and so many of you challenged us, but mostly we did this because we were inspired by Anthony Carbajal’s ALS challenge video. 
Jon: We thank all of you for challenging us, but Anthony showed us how real ALS is and what our pledges really mean to the cause.
Seamus: So instead of nominating someone specific, we challenge everyone out there who has not done the ice bucket challenge to go out and do it and please donate. (x)


After the Thin Man (1936)



the knowledge i am most proud of
was bestowed onto me
by my father over games of scrabble
and french bread end pieces sans butter
                                  (a paradox, really) 

i memorized the greek alphabet
and stories of grandmother janine
who would’ve loved me, i’m assured

these marathon vocabulary building sessions
were the beginning of my word collection
defenestrate, i was told
was the act of throwing someone out a window 
(imbusulate, he joked, was to throw someone
                                      out of a bus.) 

so i compiled colloquies like charm bracelets
graduated from prose to poetry, still
dabbling in francophone when stringing together
coherent thoughts        threatened to choke me. 

i managed to survive.
