Just Shy Of Sunrise

I don’t remember my last cigarette, but I can still taste the first one: dried banana leaves (shag) clumsily rolled into a cigar, smoked hidden in the grass behind a ‘liberal’ neighbour’s yard, a rebel who’d never reveal the passage rites of new teens testing the boundaries. I wasn’t alone; my cousin of the same … Continue reading

Leaving Already?

Goodbyes are unnecessary if departure from where you are is the only way to achieve happiness; just get up and leave

Door #3

The decision for marriage is made by man and woman or ‘partners’ in agreement until incohesion poses questions that can only be resolved by a judge: divorce proceedings.

Heads or Tails?

Top dollar Too rich for my blood Penny for your thoughts! Chump change Double or nothing! Two wrongs don’t make a right Better late than never Talk is cheap Money talks Money is the root of all evil Nothing lasts forever Seeing is believing One step at a time Time is relative A matter of … Continue reading

Holes in the Bucket

As you know, even space ship captains need time, and a place, to reflect. That’s what my observation lounges are for, and I’ve just spent some time there. These are the things that have been on my mind recently(follow the link). Click here to enter my mind

I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award. Okay. To have a chance at winning the award, I’m required to divulge several ‘generous’ slivers of information about myself. I’ll be winning very little under those rules. I’m an extremely private person, and having to talk about myself is ungratifying. And it terrifies me. Even now, I am … Continue reading

Dear God! You’re Busted

‘bio-molecular warhead (operations manual)’ Breaking News: God has been found. He’s here, in WordPress City, throwing parties under the alias Big G, and he is ‘Lord of his own little kingdom.’ God has several clubs and a massive line-up of performing acts; deejays, rappers, singers, poets, dancers, recitalists, and garbage workers of the strangest sort – they don’t take the garbage out, … Continue reading

Fathers & Sons. Pt.1

Part.2 by Alexander Prophet  ‘we are not our fathers sons, we are, our mothers’ children.‘  People ask me often, ‘Alex Ferry! Where’re you from?’ That’s not difficult to explain but it takes time. To listen.  My father’s mother, a Franco-German, was born in Elsass-Lothrington to a Hamburg seamstress and a Bordeaux wine dealer. His father … Continue reading

Orgasms & Equality

Let’s cut to the chase.   I am galled, and pretty steamed today, having encountered men, repeatedly, who label women as sluts, simply because the girl is getting some. The heat is on Taylor Swift, presently being battered with a Lindsay Lohan comparison, as if there’s something morally wrong, or unclean, about either of those two ladies getting it on. Why are … Continue reading
