Eternal Sleep.

  Eternal Sleep.   I had a dream last night where I was supreme and had so much money and fame that everybody knew my name.   When awake, nobody knew any of my prose or me, but everybody knew because I drank, my bank account was a blank.   I judge my life when…




A Story

Sent off a novel today to be dissected as though the words I used were resurrected from the graveyard where unused words are sent when they’re no longer of any use.   Like my manuscript, editors scrutinize my words about my past for clues of future success without regard to my exceptional ideas because they…
