Zilch, Zophiel, Zero… #atozchallenge

Zilch, is all’s I ever got. My wife, the harpy, continually nags me to take her places. I thought, “Peru is some place.” The Inca ruins were breathtaking. All I heard was, “The mountains are freezing. So I bought Marjorie a coat made from  mountain goat’s wool. Later that day, we climbed to Machu Picchu. […]

I Need a Transfusion #halloween #poetry #horrorweek

    Suspended above the clouds captive of a swoon what magician’s trick  hung me by the moon life leaves me in sleep celestial I drift all Hallow’s calamity my blood forever drips     DRIP, Drip, drip… silent as the dead the jack-o-lantern jeers fear we now instead notes that gave a tip to […]

Fresh #poetry #photography

Fresh  fallen the night before crisp  footprints on distant shore crystalline capturing  fallen light colorful red rose smiling bright holding hands clasped this day speechless love needed nothing to say vowed spoken to the skies renewed snowflakes in our eyes free petals fall in the breeze laughter whispers spoken to the trees fallen strong stood […]

Blood in its wake #flashfiction #newcago #noir

I stood in a daze my mouth agape out of nowhere came a colorful bus travelling much too fast Its wheels barely touching the pavement. I heard a woman scream and then saw her emerge from the bus’ bloody wake Staggering, she strained toward the guarded doorway Never acknowledging my presence, she pled with the stoic, holographic […]

Hard To Read #fiction #poetry

Pain – these words each one excising flesh severing my nerves taking my breath * fictitious you may be I hear the victim’s cry willing you to flee wrings me dry * your type never benign you stalk the pages your sinister breathed lines predator of the world’s  stage *** I am presently editing a […]

The Message Behind the Dress #flashfiction #newcago

It had been a glorious, humm dinger  of a  day in NewCago. We celebrated  a holiday (the key players long forgotten) of a well-known street battle that had raged years ago. The gangs remembered  and agreed to keep the streets safe for one day. The parade-route litter of popcorn bags and soda cups was a […]

Caught by her… #vampire #flashfiction

“you can have all of them or me” she waved her hand at an impressive lineup of beautiful women “what was it about her that captivated me and would not let me go? Hmmm could it have been the long raven hair to go with those long, silky legs or perhaps those eyes that held […]

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
