Bandit Art

slosh-clack shake spray paint mists back street
hissing splashes vibrant palette
fervent frenzy sizzles concrete

all are equal, this ain’t wall street
race non-issue, nameless talent
slosh-clack shake spray paint mists back street

bouncing bobbing to that dope beat
mouthing drake, her tongue a mallet
fervent frenzy sizzles concrete

powered people call her deadbeat
fuck the blowhards on the ballot
slosh-clack shake spray paint mists back street

rage against machine on repeat
thundered words beat heart like rabbit
fervent frenzy sizzles concrete

tearing rebel eyes now retreat
raging emo packed on pallet
slosh-clack shake spray paint mists back street
fervent frenzy sizzles concrete

The Minimal Effort Guide to Self-Publishing on Amazon

I wrote a guide to self-publishing both print and eBooks on Amazon Kindle in seven easy steps. Much of this information can be found elsewhere, but after struggling through it, I decided to make my own super-simple guide with all of the instructions in one place. I hope it’s useful to some nascent authors looking to self-publish… 🙂

The Minimal Effort Guide to Self-Publishing on Amazon

Unknowable Like Pi

Cotton candy wafting through sticky nostrils,
elephant ears scalding youthful throats.
Bucket seats rise, legs swinging careless and free,
time marches, its passenger a tightening throat.
Peak ever approaching but forever distant
until rusted support erased from sight.

Gone.

Stomach-floating fall, first warning tardy,
Mr. Ferris and his giant wheel grind on,
rolling inexorably clockwise to unlit, mazed depths.
Direction, distance? Compass-spinningly unknowable like pi.
Feline, liver-twisting Schrödinger possibilities,
quantum combination of head-spinning heights
and world-tilting, whirling neon descents.

Always in motion, this finite flow of time,
until our visceral unicycle ride finds its graceful end.

Control is Live on Amazon!

My new Control novella is live on Amazon. It’s a very dark, graphic science fiction superhero/supervillain story. (Think Alien with a supervillainess.) You have been warned… 🙂

Standing Naked in the Wind

I love writing.com. Every now and then, a REAL author just drops you a little note out of the blue, and you realize that you’re completely exposed, just standing naked in the wind with your own embarrassing, crazy little stories…

Gotta love it! 🙂
