Four Stories

Hello, Friends – – –

It’s been a minute. But I have some new stories for you…

The second is a little story of love, There Was a Woman.

Hope you enjoy the stories, friends. If you do, I hope you’ll consider buying me a coffee. Every cup helps.

Though I’ve closed comments to prevent abuse, I do hope you drop me a line some time.

Short Circuit

Hello, Friends – – –

The final issue of one of my favorite magazines, Short Circuit, is out today.

A bittersweet moment, but I’m happy to have two pieces in it.

The first is a very short story, The Sweet Striper.

The second is a poem, I do not begrudge the young.

I hope you enjoy them…

That’s all for now, friends.

POEM: Friday Night

Friday night

I was drunk on
sauvignon

writing
triolets

my note-
pad slanting
to catch
the lamp-
light

For a moment
closing
my eyes

I woke
as the dawn
was putting on
its clothes
