Front & Center

Dear Jules, I’m still alive. But the war isn’t over, in spite of the epidemic that’s decimating the troops. They’re calling it The Weinstein Plague. What I know right now, from reading dispatches, is the enemy has synthesised the original virus and dispersed it indiscriminately throughout the fields of battle. Despicable. Dirty warfare. No bottom … Continue reading

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

It wasn’t me.

When American bombs fall from drones on Arab homes extinguishing each life inside a child and it’s mother grandparents siblings and bystanders in the quest to kill one man do you light a candle?

Santa! Down Here.

The sticky, candy-coated popcorn, that’s what he bought, when he got luck. Those little packs of sticky came with a balloon. Reds, orange, yellow and blues, hope, but there’s only one in each. A pack of six, balloons, that is, sealed in plastic, held together with card and steel clips, in three square inches, that’s … Continue reading

May I?

  Quiet, May quiet, Buzzing bee quiet, Clinking, clanking Next door neighbour, Garden lunch dishes quiet. Fluffy cotton unthreatening Sparse thin cloud, Soft pale blue sky quiet, Gentle sun, high plane quiet, Distant humming traffic quiet. Proud strutting bird breast quiet, Whistling tweety tweetering quiet, Mighty minny quarreling midges quiet, Slowly struggling blackspotted red-backed insects … Continue reading

Excommunication

PLEASE READ, and think about it seriously.

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

Misery Hates Company

It’s easier and cowardly to commit suicide than go on living, or so I’ve been told, by the ‘not depressed’. As a major depression sufferer I contemplate suicide on a daily basis, yet somehow continue through the agony of (my) life. Suicide isn’t the act of cowards, though, it can be, but, there is no … Continue reading

Odyssey of a Novice Writer

Aspiring novelist. Avid reader of fiction. Reviewer of books. By day, my undercover identity is that of meek, mild-mannered legal assistant, Kate Loveton, working in the confines of a stuffy corporate law office; by night, however, I'm a super hero: Kate Loveton, Aspiring Novelist and Spinner of Tales. My favorite words are 'Once upon a time... ' Won't you join me on my journey as I attempt to turn a hobby into something more?
