Will

what is this about…some kind of question and answer session…’bout what…this guy says this…that guy says that…hard to tell whose telling the truth anymore…all these hints and allegations…think you know me…think again…my whole life could be one big lie…a giant falsehood…just story after story made up…and for what…for what…in order to impress you…make you think […]

meow

the apartment was pitch black…no running water…bills had been skipped…a cat in the corner made noise all night long…howling in darkness…wanting for food an’ water…a cup of kindness was out of the question….no matter how loud she meowed…nothin’ was comin’ her way… an’ a portable radio played jazz from ‘cross the river…in the night-time when […]

There’s the train whistle…,he said…,every mornin’ ’round this time while the moon is still up in the sky that thing comes through…,he lit a Camel and took a swig of coffee…offered one to his son-in-law sittin’ in the pickup truck with him…he shook his head and the train whistled again…,that train just comes through town…it […]
