Big Band Theory

A finger huge as God stabs the air, Cab Galloway kicks it all off with "Hi De Ho Man". Cops don't come 'round here. The color of blood is black under moonlight, pungent odor of reefer mingles with Pomade; the first building blocks of the Cotton Club. Seventeen horns and a rhythm section, Lena Horne ...

Burning Man

The dead say there is a tunnel that funnels light to pin point, like roasting ants with a magnifying glass. There are pieces of him everywhere- bits of chewed nail in ashtrays, footprints fossilizef in the Berber. The automated voice that apologizes; "this mailbox is full and cannot receive any mess...

the denigration of the water bearer, the superior attitude of the white English.

The Problem With Two Cats

There is nothing worse than two cats you can't tell apart except when they're in the bed on either side of you yeowling because you drank tequila again at 10 am, slept through feeding time, and they're not fucking having it. One mock-bites, the other licks. You turn an eye one to another, trying to ...

Grandfather Clock

For years, they have lived like mice, grey and quiet. Behind the blank face, Behind the scissor -pincer hands. they make a home among the wheels and dials, the weight and pulley inside my head. At night, a phantom shares my bed, the faint rise and fall of her breath, the porcelain skin cold to the t...

Re: The Smuggling Experience

Yes this is very well done. I particularly enjoyed the irony that the narrator may in fact be smuggling gold under their noses. I'm going to nominate this for IBPC

Re: The Eunuch

I put a ring through his nose, bound him with serpents, fed him Tuna and honey-garlic until he grew sleek, bathed him with quicklime and pepper-water. I sold him to the high priest for a promise of favor from Horus and sev...
