American poet and novelist Stephen Dobyns believes that, “How To Like It,” is his most well-regarded work. The poem juxtaposes the impulse-driven desires of an excited dog out for his evening walk with the hesitant, even fearful, reservations of the dog’s master, and touches upon themes of change, desire, and the complexities of life. Much of Dobyns’ poetry employs extended tropes (see, “Determ... Read more of this blog post »

“Eve wasn't sure what right the clown had to butcher the poor girl like that. In fact, most horror movies made her angry. Though the 'final girl' usually got out alive, she was stripped of so much by the time the credits rolled.”
Christa Carmen, Four Souls of Eve
tags: horror

“Kyle's throat caught.

His boastful expression turned to panic. He made the universal sign of choking at her, and stamped his feet like a child having a temper tantrum in the candy aisle.

Chloe did not move.”
Christa Carmen, Just Desserts

“The ever-present macabre, a universal dance,
You cannot hide, whether you wield crossbow or lance.
Like the bones of the house in which you dwell,
Death will come, to drag your soul to hell.”

“You can't drink 'English afternoon tea' in the morning," the barista said to her, his eyes blazing like shards of crystal meth about to ignite. "Do you want to be responsible for fucking up the universe?”

“Defeated, Jo turned her head as the knives hurdled through the air. There was another photograph on the wall: a shot of Franny Jo had never seen before. As the woman in the photo watched her knives driven home, the corners of her mouth turned up. For the first time ever, Jo was privy to a genuine smile on the lips of Franny Trymark.”
