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 […]

Tasting it on the air. Smelling it on the wind. I see it in her eyes. Escaping from her skin. Filling me up. Red rising level. Her neckline flush. Her hair disheveled. Her hand glides. The bloodlust overtaking me. I close my eyes. The scent saturating the olfactory. Holding me in position. I hear the […]

The snowmelt covered the city sidewalks and filled in the porous surface, as it ran off the edges and down the sides.  She walked the city streets in her heeled, Mary Janes, straight legged in the early evening, while observing the overhanging lights of a winter wonderland.   Spying the club down the street, she […]

Hips swaying back and forth, Methodically and seductively, One foot replacing the other. Slide and twist. Humming soulful renditions, Depicting a rendezvous. No words,  “Shhhh.” No movement,  a felt embrace. This is where I meet her, When I close my eyes. Jonesin’ for a rendezvous. Sharing a sunset over the beach. A place outside of the […]

Drying her hair, covered […]

The methodical movements of windshield wipers pace back and forth across a gray and overcast sky. Steam escapes the charcoal of industrial chimneys, dissipating under the assault of the rain, while I traverse the ley lines of the bridge. The rumble of the thunder creates a veil of solitude within this personal eye to mask […]

He opened the door with the light spilling out onto the street, diffusing into the Day’s light. I put a seashell to my ear and it all comes back… Like a locomotive gaining speed, the trumpets set the cadence while the drums marched on the in-betweens.  Men in tuxes draped by silk scarfs criss-crossed the room […]
