A Bird in the Rain

Desperately, flailing wings braved the torrent. Such a willful display of bravery. Even the seated man couldn’t resist. Covered in gilded warmth a roof gave; Trees yielded insufficient shelter.

Four Beers

The first beer strips you of shyness. It’s easier to swish around in those denim blues the world’s become fond of— Even more so when morals are loose and the guy ahead looks like an attractive prop from the brand new Footloose. Okay, so chug, chug, a-glug and you’re imitating MJ on the bud. It’s …

Summertime

Summertime Follies with wind running rampant through my hair. It conjures up memories of the past.
