Description: A silly (and some may say filthy) story I wrote that I never liked quite enough to "finish" but yet that I still somehow like enough not to banish it to parts unknown.

Shad thanks man. glad you enjoyed it.

message 1: by W.B.

W.B. Hey, I got your book in the mail.


It's really, really stellar stuff.

I was hoping you had made the hand emendations for the typos that seemed to exasperate you (love that handwritten touch!) but I think I figured where they were and read over them fine...a word dropped out in one, etc....

It arrived the same day this supernally designed Hokuseido press edition of Akutagawa's KAPPA came, so I was flipping back and forth between his book and yours, and they complemented each other splendidly!

The poems in your collection are austere, but austere in the way ancient stilettos in a museum are...they're made for one purpose and looking at them, we know they could still accomplish their dark purpose at a moment's notice.

Your poems have equally unequivocal points.

Props to the Maker.
