A Call to Prayer (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:33PM
Description: Constraints on line length have fouled up some of the structure of my lines. Aw well. A poem. I'm thrown off by signs held by the homeless that do not ask for anything.
The Nature of Miracles (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:33PM
Description: City Works accepted this for publication!
My Growing Illiteracy (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:33PM
Description: Revised again, using criticism from my profs. Feel free to help me fix it up. I think it's starting to work, but it still needs something. This is the only poem I have ever done that references my military background. Which feels weird.
You Chose to Leave (Poetry)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:32PM
Description: A mash-up of events that did and did not happen to me.
Good Fortune (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:32PM
Description: This one tied for 2nd in the Prose Category of City Works. That weirds me out, but...cool!
