All the Shelves
by Gabe Redel


Is it that people are mud hills?
Is it that the rain falls over the hill
and washes pieces of ourselves into the great river,
and the river carries them away,
far, far away until we can no longer see
what it is that we had lost?

Are we the trees collecting plastic bags

Max Davine Max Davine's blog:
Under the lavender sunset,
stirred dreams that lay in wait,
as the sun lay down to rest,
dormant desires awake.

Underneath the milky clouds,
my hands begin to shake,
the world is silent all around,
two worlds gravitate.

We saw it all turn into dust,
the way we feared did take,
but beneath the soft violet d... Read more of this blog post »

When I wrote Uncertain Murder, I discovered how difficult getting a mystery just right could be. And being a writer who doesn’t plan everything out ahead meant a lot more work on the back end, not just to get the details correct and the clues in place, but to make sure the story unfolded properly...

Under open sky
How great,
When it's minus five
Centigrade
To have a lazy float and swim
Covered by the coat of dense of steam.
Lifeguards are clod
In thick jackets and boots,
But we aren't cold
In our bathing suits.
Frost is gleaming
At the ends of our hair,
But we keep swimming,
We do not care.
