The pride, tentatively, walked to the water’s edge to lap up a cool drink on a hot night.  Breaking the calm, water thrashed about, reaching forward, pushed by the violence, the spray lashed out in all directions.  Each animal instinctively reacted, as taut muscles sprung each escape.  Missing it’s mark, the waters gathered back over the croc as […]

One day, I stood in my kitchen and stared out the window, onto the view of a pasture across the way.  I thought about what type of man I would become, the pathway I would follow, once I am old.  I contemplated the style of dress I might wear – the direction I might comb […]

Fast flicking fingers catch the attention with gaudy flirtation, leaving the streets littered with cards.  “Boom.” The canon and bass bounced from the deck of the ship carrying the muffled voices of the show siren through the crowd.  Light from the Luxor’s capstone shown straight into the nighttime sky.   Luminescent bulbs flood the streets […]

“The Before” is just as good as “the After.” But “the Before” is all for “the After.” And “the Before” doesn’t exist if I can’t have “the After.” Following after her lines, tracing my fingertips across her shoulders, my hands move down her back before her thighs.
