Re: A Christmas Eve Story

Bob not sure what you're going for here. It's pretty plain to my ear. I guess the mystery is who the man was or even if N actually saw a man. The last line is good, a hint maybe,at what was under the tree.

Re: Bareback

A kind of heroic piece actually.
Two opposing forces giving no quarter

Really like the inclusion of Samson.

I think this is a keeper

We watched her die nine times each more beautiful than the last on the beach, dressed her wounds with a poultice of fish brine and seaweed. I scattered her books and drawings so that anyone who happened by would think her a sea-witch. We made a signal fire to warn off ships at sea, sat with her drin...

The Hag

I watched her die twenty six times on the beach, dressed her wounds with a poultice of fig and seaweed, scattered her books and drawings so that anyone who happened by would think her a sea witch. By morning, ghost crabs had taken her toes. Their intumescent shells looked blue beneath the moonlight....

Formulary

f I bound you in silk brocade,
tethered to an oaken post,
your hair an apostasy of tangles,
damask flowing around thighs,

you would be no less mine than
if I wrapped you up in chains,
foundered on the floor, wild eyed,
nostrils flared; the drag coefficient.
