Prose Poetry: Spilt Milk

Don’t cry over spilt milk, they always say. As if sorrow is akin to something as useless as weeping over milk containers emptied onto the floor or the table or the countertops. As if sorrow is truly so silly. But sorrow is like spilt milk, is thick and pale and fast spreading and hard to … Continue reading

Blog Hiatus, or, Life Happens

Hello all, I know I have been missed…maybe… Due to some random and life altering changes that have been occurring, I have not remembered to write a damn thing. No posts, no novel, no flash fiction. This has obviously made for a very boring and non-updated blog. But! I am going to try and do … Continue reading

Happy Anniversary to Us

I have been a bad, bad blogger recently. Not that I’ve ever been the example for good bloggers (sporadic posts, much?). But I logged into WordPress today with the intention of writing a quick update, and found a Happy Anniversary notification from WordPress. Apparently, I have been blogging on here, writing flash fiction and book … Continue reading

Flash Fiction: Neon

I moved from a city that was always dark after ten o’clock, the stars still able to peek through the smog, to shine a little light here and there. Here, I find myself doused, soaked, slick with neon, even when I’ve thought I washed it away, down, down the drain. I’m getting used to the … Continue reading

Flash Fiction: Star

Another Non-Flash-Fiction Flash Fiction. Don’t know where to put these, so here they go! Yesterday I was a star. Bright, shining, burning, burning, burning. I wasn’t supposed to be done so soon, but I was needed and so I fell, far, far down, a very long ways, and here I am. This morning I was … Continue reading

Flash Fiction: The Boat

Once upon a time, there was a boat. It was a simple boat, crafted by bare, rough hands in the heat of summer with carefully bowed planks of red cedar. It was large enough for two but never more than that, though that had never been a worry. There were only two, had only ever … Continue reading

Flash Fiction/Prose Poetry: Smile

I realized this morning that I haven’t posted in weeks! I’ve been busy with film shoots and randoms, so it just kind of ran away from me. This is a fiction/poetry hybrid I wrote a while back. I remembered having written it after my shoot last weekend, which deals with similar themes. Hope you like! … Continue reading

Flash Fiction: Summer

She gripped his hand and they rocked together to the melody. Soft, soft, soothing saxophone and crickets sang them down, down into darkness. They’d spent years here, on this porch. Muggy, murky summers passed and lightning bugs bumbled through the thick air. Autumn came and whispered the chirping cicadas away. Red and orange burned into … Continue reading

Christmas is Over – Now What?

Christmas is over, which  means the New Year is fast approaching – and thank god. This year has been rife with some ups and many, many downs. I had so many ideas that I could not follow through on, so many goals I set that I did not achieve. But really that isn’t the worst … Continue reading

Been A While

It’s been a while, WordPress and friends. I have been busy with general life things – perhaps that’s not an excuse, but I’m still trying to get better with updating my blog despite having so many other things going on. I know lots of bloggers do it, so what is stopping me? To give a … Continue reading
