Not a fan of Google Hangouts; Facebook’s unnevessary equivalent to showing that your message has been read.

There’s something invasive about it. Can’t quite explain why — it just makes me uncomfortable.

Texting and Gchat have been my steady modes of communication for quite a while now. Leaving Facebook forced me to consider how to remain in touch with people while retaining privacy and leisure. An unencumbered enjoyment of communication between two realities.

Hangouts does not quite allow that — it’s a minute tracking system, in a way, showing the other when their message was read, but minus reply. Being one who carefully considers their words, I often require more time before feeling like the correct words have been found. Sometimes, like today, there are none; standing in the sea of mourners at Coco’s wake.

Witches, like saints, are solitary stars that shine with a light of their own; they depend on nothing and no one, which is why they have no fear and plunge blindly into the abyss with the assurance that instead of crashing to earth, they will fly back out. They can change into birds and see the world from above, or worms to see it from within, they can inhabit other dimensions and travel to other galaxies, they are navigators on an infinite ocean of consciousness and cognition.

On Tuesday, a bonsai tree boldly went where no bonsai tree has gone before.

Azuma Makoto, a 38-year-old artist based in Tokyo, launched two botanical arrangements into orbit: “Shiki 1,” a Japanese white pine bonsai tree suspended from a metal frame, and an untitled arrangement of orchids, lilies, hydrangeas, and irises.

She of silver spoon
Tight lipped and
Straight backed

Laced in straight A’s
Viola fingertips
A scientific mind swimming

He of slug trails
Crooked teeth and
The scarecrow slouch

Sweating dreams begone
Chewed up fingernails
A literary mind unbound

So then,
A dark art of
Full-moon Chemistry.

where is your ask box?
