They said, “The peace couldn’t last for too long.”  You could hear the acrid breeze moving through the leaves.  You could see the diseased air stripping the trees. My daughter asked, “Daddy, what does it mean?”  I answered, “Things are about to become scary.  So be wary of the character of strangers you meet.”  Roll […]

I can remember one day – I was passing by this old dude.  He asked me to go to the store for him.   He told me he’d give me a couple of dollars.  I hollered back, “Nah, man.  I gotta be somewhere.  I don’t have time.”  I didn’t even look at him. I only slightly […]

The Sun’s light shown through the windows and doors of the all white room.  The all white curtains stood sentry at the windows, motionless and at attention.  She sat at the piano between two, all white columns. Her wrists, in staccato movements, struck the keys with angled elbows, while her fingers, deliciously, devoured each note. […]

The cool air of the summer night makes its way through the open window. The city lights in the distance catch his gaze. Holding it for a few more seconds, he tugs at his necktie, leaving it to loosely hang. The nearest light fell across the dark hue of his skin, bringing shadow to his […]

I made a robot on a hot Summer day.  I was wearing my old Wisconsin shirt with athletic shorts to stay cool.  But it was one of those particularly humid, Midwestern, hot Summer days. The kind where the heat just sticks to you; chasing you even into the shade. I assembled the legs, arms, and […]

He’d been trying to muscle in on my business for a couple of months, upsetting my routine, the little fat-faced fucker. Leaving me threatening messages, warning me, that he was coming for me and sooner or later, he’d get what I so called owed him. Wasn’t my fault he was bad at math. Besides, betting […]

“Watch it!” “Hey man!” “What the fuck!” I ran into the crowd, in the hopes I could lose it there.  I watched as it dove in after me. It slithered it’s way through, pulling the bulk of itself forward.  My face and hands bounced off jackets and shoulders as I frantically pushed my way through the […]

Shimmy, shimmy ya.  Shimmy yeah.  Shimmy hey.  Honey had the maracas bumping against her hips and ass, hypnotically, while the bass guitar scaled the stairs.  My eyes followed the lacquered sheen shining off the bourbon chocolate of her muscled thighs.  She danced under the club lights that hung just above the wooden rails leading up […]

Drowning her senses with energies she hadn’t recently had the pleasure of visiting, Parisian rains continued to pour.  Raindrops, following one another in the downpour, formed wet fingerprints against the skylight. A semblance of near suffocation. Freezing for an instant to decay into the meeting of two seas. Their borders were indistinguishable. She tastes his […]

Selena passed them on her way into the place.  A gorgeous distraction, black leather and lace.  Tossed ’em a sly smile.  Nothing but raised eyebrows and Ooohh faces.  My ace up the sleeve, always without fail had ’em gasping, trying to breathe. Smoothly, I dipped inside the building to cut the cables and put the […]
