The start of a New Year is always a great time of reflection to see how far I’ve come and to look ahead to see where I am heading in the next year. A time for celebration and renewal; In the past I would hangout with my family, get together with friends, or spend it […]

Sappho's Torque

Today’s my daughter actual birthday, so I asked her what her favorite poem is, and she said “The Raven” by Edgar Allen Poe. She likes its rhythm and rhyme scheme and the fact that “it’s a creepy story,” which she pronounced with an adorable grin. So here you go! Read it out loud by candlelight. […]

Halloween Hollow

by Edgar Allan Poe (published 1845) Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping, As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. “‘Tis some visitor,” I muttered, “tapping at […]

Yet Another Persona 4 Blog

Weather: rainy Finally got a relatively light day! (edit: 800 words later…) To be honest, writing up everything that happened yesterday after work nearly killed my enthusiasm for this project. I’m starting to understand why creative writing is hard: it’s a lot of work, even if you know what you are writing about. I feel […]

Dactyl Review

  For the past couple of years I’ve been reading lots of short story collections by living American writers, looking for something that sparks with creativity, not often finding much. Lauren Groff is generally accepted as one of the prime divas of the MFA world of writing. The stories in this new collection, “Florida” (Riverhead […]

This must be the place. Quietly, selectively, and precisely. Like a velvet cloth with symmetrically placed, hair sprayed by Mercier’s by ambre and vanilla, to please the sight of the artist. Charcoal covering her thumb, while scratching her reality. Awaiting what cleared to her mind. Taking over her smile, out of the ordinary.. and her […]

American Dreams & American Damage

‘Lacerating Duality’ swells in an out of focus like a dusty reel of film in a makeshift projection booth. Three ambiguous movements of paranoid stereo field fuckery. Rain slicked midnight streets, the dubious scraping sounds overheard in a cheap motel room, the hum and crackle of the gas station attendant’s pocket radio. A Lynchian diorama […]

Full Time Dan

I asked my lovely partner for a subject to write a short story about and she gave me ‘Someone who doesn’t get enough sleep’: The street below was busy as always. In many towns the clock approaching midnight would see a decline in street level activity but not this one. Hours earlier the pedestrians would […]

Know what you are putting in your body! Just like you wouldn’t eat something random you have no clue what is in it… Why stick something random in your body. Unfortunately, the reality is there are a lot “knock off” sex toys being manufactured with “sketchy” materials. Materials like pure silicone are expensive, so poor […]

The Eros Principle

  She keeps warm in the long northern winters writing about tall ships riding the waves; plucking stories out of eyes and hands on old paintings and photographs, yarns and phrases half-finished and left behind, still smoldering, among cigarette butts in full ashtrays at smoky taverns; she collects discarded memories out of the veins of […]
