  • Endless Road To The Sea
    440 words
    Talking to Grief Ah, Grief, I should not treat you like a homeless dog who comes to the back door for a crust, for a meatless bone. I should trust you. I should coax you into the house and give you your own corner, a worn mat to lie on, your own water dish. You think I don't know you " ve been living under my porch. You long for your real place to be readied before winter comes. You need your name, your collar and tag. You need the right to warn off intruders, to consider my house your own and m...

  • Slang Word
    461 words
    From wicked good, to psychedelic, to "word", there is no reason why older generations never understand what the youth today consider the latest slang.

Hrafnkel's murder of Einar was justified in a myriad of ways. When Hrafnk...

  • Lady And The Word

It was a simple one and in some respects no different from the drafts to poems I later published.
