Writing Update

I’m working on editing a play I wrote some years ago based and inspired by Alice in Wonderland. A theatre friend of mine loved it, so, I guess that I’ll get it edited, possibly published, and maybe offer it for free in a pdf format to college students for their thesis plays. Maybe. What do you guys think?


End

The books pile high
and the military
becomes the police force.
Torches in every man’s hand.
I hide, watching.

Skyscrapers once reached
to the heaven.
Now, they are crumbled.
Pictures, not withstanding,
no one remembers.

With no choice, but survival
they turn to him,
the man with the torch,
setting the books on fire.
I watched.


Dismembered: They Had it Coming…

Dismembered: They Had it Coming…

When an online writing group full of sick and twisted people, decide to take on the subject of murder… this is what happens. ‘The Unblocked Writers Group’ was started on facebook in 2010. On most days, they are content with the usual activities—sharing writing tips, posting excerpts of their current projects, hi-jacking posts with what they believe to be witty commentary and generally finding newer and more creative ways to drive each other nuts. However, once they were challenged to create their best fictional murder story in flash-fiction format, all hell broke loose. ‘Dis-Membered’ is a collection of short narratives from 12 writers with one mission: crafting the untimely and gruesome demise of whoever they felt had it coming. With tactics ranging from subtle acts of deceit and trickery to raw and savage depravity, they combined to leave a trail of bodies on the page. In the end, no one was safe from their wrath—not even their fellow group members.

 

My short story “Welcome to the Afterlife” was published in this anthology. Available on Kindle and paperback.


Making Love

Dominatus‘ new one

is done already.

She looks beautiful.

 

From the fifties,

my love.

 

I watch him work.

He goes over to his old one.

I watch him take

 

out his scalpel.

He slid it over the skin

of her throat seductively.

 

He was having sex

with her, using

his scalpel.

 

I love you,

my darling April.

You are my showers.

 

His voice was melodic.

The scalpel penetrated

her epidermis and slashed.

 

She now wore a red dress.


Pounding

I hear the bear’s heartbeat.

It should be yours.

I’m broken,

Can I be fixed?


Enjoy the Lies and Betrayal

You’re one of those boys

With charm coming out your ears

Girls line up for you

Trying to ease their fears

 

She’s an angel

Willing to love forever

But your heart is stone

And they’re all stupid.

 

Stupid girls, Can’t you see the signs?

My warnings will ultimately fail.

Stupid Girls, Enjoy the lies and betrayal.

 

Girls, I’m not trying to hurt you

I’m trying to save you

He’ll chew you up

And spit you back out

 

He’s cheated and lied

He’ll hurt you over again

He’ fix you,

But he’ll shatter your heart

 

Stupid girls, Can’t you see the signs?

My warnings will ultimately fail.

Stupid Girls, Enjoy the lies and betrayal.

 

I can’t save you. He’ll hurt you.

I can’t save you. He’ll hurt you.

I can’t save you. He’ll hurt you.

I can’t save you. He’ll hurt you.

 

Stupid girls, Can’t you see the signs?

My warnings will ultimately fail.

Stupid Girls, Enjoy the lies and betrayal.

 

Stupid girls, Can’t you see the signs?

My warnings will ultimately fail.

Stupid Girls, Enjoy the lies and betrayal.

 

Enjoy the lies and betrayal.
