Edgar Lee Masters
“To this generation I would say:
Memorize some bit of verse of truth or beauty.”

One clover, and a bee,
And revery.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.”
Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson

Have eyes to wonder, but lack tongues to praise.”

Description: For now I'm just going to post this one poem. It's the only I've written that doesn't make me wince when I reread it.

Description: These are stories I wrote for San Diego City Beat's Fiction 101 contest (the best stories under 101 words.) The first one won an honorable mention despite its stupid title. The second was printed without a mention of any kind. BTW, if you want to know what a pataphor is, consult wikipedia. That's where I learned of them. Also, Pedro Edelstein is the name of my chihuahua/dachshund mix. Everything else is purely fictional.
