A Writer’s Best Friend

The secret to good writing, like anything else, is practice. The more you do it, the better you become at it. You find your favorite words and develop new tricks. You create images no one has experienced before, and you refine them by creating them over and over again. It's not a question if you should write, but when... Continue Reading →

Thieves in the Dawn

Thieves lurk in the dawn Plucking stars From the faded blackness. Grins bloom Along their wormy lips And their nails glow With the dust Of the heavens. Pockets full of crystal light, They slink back to their burrows Before day can catch Them in the act. And they rest Without sleep Too eager To see... Continue Reading →

Yes, its light is brighter, Stable and slow. Safe and warm, It browns your body With a long, caramel kiss. Now look again, For... Continue Reading →

The Beating Time-Keeper

Deep in the gutted Belly of a chest, Dust settles on nameless Treasures. Toy ships lost On bellowing, black Waters churning along Through nighttime fantasies. A brother's bottled Scream, of joy, Of sorrow, and fear. The velvet caress Of a lover's first kiss And second and third And final. Deep in the beating Time-keeper, where... Continue Reading →

It’s a Tragedy

"It's a tragedy," They'd say, breath Static and still. "A bloody shame," They'd weep, no Tang of iron On the tongue, no Sight of scarlet In the depths Of their creased palms. "He will be missed," They'd state, no Tears sludging Out their eyes, no Dribbles of snot From their nose As if my corpse... Continue Reading →

Maybe You Love Me

Perhaps, tucked away In the billowing folds Of black space Between our Earth And another, where beasts Squawk and shake The crystal dew from their feathery manes, You love me. Snake men fly As the sun sinks In the east, And you and I Walk hand in hand. Beneath the moonless night, When crickets purr... Continue Reading →
