Poem: Sorry

Listen– I’m sorry for how I ramble on for how eye contact doesn’t always click for how I didn’t speak up because I was scared and for how I spoke up and made things awkward   I’m sorry for the length of my sentences and the depth of my inferences because I read into things […]

Short Story: Hodgey

Written September 2015. This story is not considered canonical within The Valley Chronicles trilogy, but is an excellent example of Hodgey’s voice.

Poem: What Are You Wearing Today?

Thanks for asking, great question. This is a 6’2″ mixed-race suit designed by God back in 1999… embellished with some scars and wear and tear for personality. It’s growing on me.

Poem: Look Up

Written Spring 2016. Memories are a funny thing, I guess They fade, they falter, they have a midlife crisis They decide to tweak themselves. Memories are not immutable. They are always changing and reinventing themselves.   Example: Once I remembered our first meeting differently, But context lent that day a more sinister edge. It would […]
