Whilst I Wait

Expired and lazy hands become more supple, fixed in a sinewy shade…. Unquiet, umbra-earth drones and fondles my darkling hands.


Some transitions are hard. The house is quiet today except for the low, soft hum of the refrigerator. There’s a ringing in my ears. From somewhere in the bushes or trees out there, in sun Continue reading Transition

Liver or Spleen: The Mega-Corporation

Corporate entities as cyborgs? Call it a stretch, if you like, but the analogy isn’t new. Shall we play? First, I’d like to introduce you to my bias: I am and have been as much Continue reading Liver or Spleen: The Mega-Corporation

‘Write What You Know’? What do I know?

I’m a smatterer. A dilettante. What about you? Turns out, this is helpful to an analogist—and being an analogist may be essential to being an author. When younger, I disliked the idea of a smatterer. Continue reading ‘Write What You Know’? What do I know?

The Perfect Day for Doom (A Dream)

The creak of a rowboat. A splash of oars. My eyes open and flutter in the glare off shallow-trough waves. The water is funneled through this local inlet, pooling under the Old Bridge, as they Continue reading The Perfect Day for Doom (A Dream)

Goodnight All

I’ve grown wary of the barely black button. So I’ll make it with circus ties and dry seasons, belly-up lies and carousels. The ministers of fucking aeronautics have declared mistletoe failure, and throughout the workings Continue reading Goodnight All
