Voiced // SHORT: Call for Attention by Thomas Rivet

Call for Attention
In a world filled with beauty, I wonder why we shut ourselves indoors, badgering numbers to make more precise predictions, yet we dismiss the Earth's directive, and then we shrug and wonder why-oh-why she erupts and shakes. How else would -or should- she capture our attention, our attention beyond the lifeless machines we share our lives with?

And this will cause guilt and criticism, for the author types this call for action behind a bright and shiny screen, O the hypocrisy of it all! Scrutinize if you may, but it won't do us any good.

Voiced // SHORT: Lost by Thomas Rivet

"...because even if I were lost in the darkened woods, far removed from town or city, 
with frosty fingertips and purple ears ... I would latch onto my soul, 
hold to my every breath, and, only then, in moments of fragile existence,
would I find myself instantly."
