Strawberry Elephants

Mitch Lang deciphers the intricacies of poetic thought. And effect. Playdough I could say, He didn’t understand a thing About my poem! But what gives me the right? I may be the one to write, Those lines, But he is the interpreter. I may know what they Meant for me, But once I decide To … Continue reading

Investing in Futures

I stood on the balcony, inhaling deeply, slowly, bathing my lungs with the fresh air of the early morning, enjoying the sound of bird orchestras, and the faint echoes of man and machine coming from the invisible boulevard behind the dancing clusters of whispering trees. Julia, from the flat directly below, walks through the yard; it’s time for work. Her … Continue reading

Drake’s Prayer

Martin Drake relaxed in a warm bath of soothing salts and caressing bubbles, to candle light and Garfunkel’s guitar. A large snifter of Hennessy Paradis Extra enhances the moment, as he ruminates over the comforts of home and his life thus far. Just beyond his retreat, the children sleep, and Denise sits cosy on the … Continue reading

Russia from my House

A picture is worth a thousand words! Indeed. Russian Artist Andrei Budaev, the master of political parody, invites us to count the words. Vladimir Putin has dominated Europe and Russia’s political stage like no other since Stalin. Pooti Poot is everywhere, and nowhere. What the American right in blatant mischaracterization attempted to pin on Obama, namely, leading … Continue reading

Please Stand Back

Please Stand Back Eberswalder Strasse, East Berlin. A busy junction. The traffic came from six directions, and in the middle are mammoth foundations of steel and heavy stone carrying the weight of the trains rumbling their way over the suspended tracks into the covered tunnel overhead.  Alex Ferry loves trains, the designs, the sound, the voice on the … Continue reading

September Seeps: Scarves & Socks by Mitch Lang September seeps in. That quilt is starting to feel a little light. The one you would kick off a few days earlier. Something frisky hints at change. Morning is late. That stuffy nose feeling. That first light scarf. The one you bought on the Summer sales. When … Continue reading

Overkill Bill

They’re standing on the corner and they can’t speak English. I can’t even talk the way these people talk: Why you ain’t, … Where you is, What he drive, Where he stay, Where he work, Who you be… And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk. And then I heard the father … Continue reading

Smoke Signals

Flash Fiction. Is short. Industry gate-keepers coalesce around 500 words. Beyond that, is motion blur. In China, long ago, it flourished as ‘the smoke long‘ story, done when your cigarette is. Of course, cigarettes were much shorter back then. There’s no need to ‘light up’ now, this will all be over in a flash. Irish … Continue reading
