She gave Hitchens the blame. Him with his blasphemous books and radical leftist friends. She said my curiosity let the devil in, and now the cat is dead.  She threw everything she could find, me dodging and weaving along the trail to the bedroom, where she raged and hurled pillows before throwing herself on the bed … Continue reading


The Final Nail

***** Kenny got shot dodging bullets he thought weren’t real but failed to put him down, proud scowling from his death-bed, fed on fear of pink slips and “no toys for Xmas kids, Daddy’s in recovery,” six feet deep in hospital sheets, tripping at God-Speed, fleeing devils that exist only in the mind firing broadsides, … 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.
