You Choose #poetry #death #dayofthedead

My fingers across stone caress raised letters your faded name  all that was left of you a chill ran down my spine looking below these arose in red new embossed letters to… I pondered your bones so cold I feared to see or hear another The embossed words: Strike me once I bleed Strike me twiceContinue reading “You Choose #poetry #death #dayofthedead”

Cover Art #dpchallenge #photography

  Can you imagine the cover art to your next book? I have- I even have the back picked out. The front is the smiling faces of Liberian children and the back is a the back of a sand filled canoe paddling away (also Liberian). What makes a good cover? I think if your cover canContinue reading “Cover Art #dpchallenge #photography”

What’s Beneath Your Christmas Tree? #poetry #dark

What will you find beneath your tree this Christmas? Romance? or…  a wonderland of snow gifts elegantly circled with red satin bows 8 knives for carving 1 rope for climbing perhaps…  a lifeless form beneath the fresh-cut Christmas Tree Read my “festive” poem “Beneath the Christmas Tree”  over at Pen of the Damned.

Undone #poetry #photography #art

Slain by your sharp edged heart well aimed piercing dart * Dripping off the edge of my page blood flows free at this stage * Alone none to hold back the pain too late to catch bloody rain * Undone mere ashes in your hands fiend, my death so long planned Art and Photograph “Undone”Continue reading “Undone #poetry #photography #art”

No Dial Tone #flashfiction #newcago #noir

She had tried desperately to make the call for help. What sick bastard had cut the phone receiver off and placed a skull face on duct tape? I  found her hanging onto the cord.  She was all dolled up on her way to something special. I was alarmed by the time of day the murderContinue reading “No Dial Tone #flashfiction #newcago #noir”

Can’t Kill the Thirst #flash fiction #retro #fridayfictioneers

Another night banging around in the trashcans of Newcago,  I needed a drink.  A tall one and a Cheesesteak at Tony’s would do nicely. I noticed the dame – she was a looker. I couldn’t get a read on the guy beneath the brim. “Yeah, the regular,” I nodded. Sally and I go back toContinue reading “Can’t Kill the Thirst #flash fiction #retro #fridayfictioneers”

The Timeless Christmas Legacy (part two) #Christmas #shortstory

There I was all dressed and ready like our Christmas turkey. “What am I doing?’ I screamed through my skin. “I will be here with you.” My grandmother’s cheerful voice seemed louder than usual. I looked toward the watch and there  stood a younger version of herself and her mother by her side. “You won’tContinue reading “The Timeless Christmas Legacy (part two) #Christmas #shortstory”

The Timeless Christmas Legacy #Christmas #shortstory

She had spoken her dying wish into that delicate symbol of timelessness. As I cradled it, I hoped to hear her voice. I did… It came each Christmas Eve just at the moment she died; I would hear a small chime and then her voice. Then the next morning we would awake to presents underContinue reading “The Timeless Christmas Legacy #Christmas #shortstory”
