Excerpt from Chapter 1 Hard Time – page 11

FINDING HEAVEN IN THE DARK



The Vietnam War was becoming more unpopular every day. It
had become an open and running sore in the American consciousness.
Its toxicity oozed into every facet of American life, and poisoned
our relations with each other and our government leaders.

Toxic

Saw a Facebook post the other day from an acquaintance in the Steampunk community, about a backhanded compliment he'd received on his looks. I commented to the effect that I thought he was a very handsome man - possibly one of the handsomest men I know. I wasn't kidding.

The Unreliable Narrator as a Literary Gimmick

The unreliable narrator is very popular right now. Thanks to authors like Gillian Flynn, Paula Hawkins and Ruth Ware - all overrated writers in my opinion. These authors use the unreliable narrator in the same way an amateur magician pulls a coin from behind your ear. It's a gimmick.

I am Spring

Spring is no less than

every day of the year
a chance of renewal in fleeting times
to catch a moment and live presently

the wind cannot stop you from flying
gravity is your only excuse…

Something close to spirit--

or the eremite leaf

unrooted by a murdering wave
and roll southward drowning
towards the leeching sand:
