A (wise) man of two faces
Musings, commentary, and the occasional parade of novelty.

Updates Monday - Friday

Fiction

What is fantasy?
Is it the little white lies
that still let us dream?


God and The Devil

Virtue
Brave and true
Praying, slaying, saving
The Coin’s other side
Preying, slaying, slaving
Twisted and perverse
Vice


Non fiction

What’s reality?
Hard lines and cutting edges
and the scars they leave?


Book 3 published!

Today I am pleased to announce that my third book “2011:  The Year I was in Love” is now available for sale.

This is the first book I’ve fully produced  - from writing, editing, and formatting the book and ebook to designing the cover.

If you would like to purchase a copy, paperback are available from CreateSpace here, from Amazon here, and the Kindle version is available here.


Hands

Dirt under his nails
Crisscrossed scars, old and faded
A man’s calluses.


Curse

I wish you death and despair,
ill health and no hair;
I pray that this hex
withers even your sex
and breaks you beyond repair.


The long, hard job

Sunrise to sunset,
I walk out that door and I
return when work’s done.


The measure of words

Poem
Short and sweet
Rhyming, timing, symbolizing
Still words run deep
Narrating, describing, climaxing
Rich and full
Prose


Labourer

Working on the lines,
it’s just another day of
working on the lines.


Book 3 delay

I received the final proof copy of book 3 in the mail today - and, frankly, the cover looks awful.  So I’m going to delay the release until I get that sorted out, because I don’t want to sell something that looks like this to anyone.

This might be the first cover I’ve designed, but I’m not going to use that as an excuse for such poor quality.  I want better, and you deserve better.

Thank you for your patience.  I’ll let you know as soon as this gets corrected.


To the death

I have loved and lost,
and buried my heart so I
would not love again.


Journey

The storm and the song
carry me along
through war and strife
this tumultuous life
to where I belong.


Book 3 announcement

I’ve been working on my third publication over the past few months and I’ll be finalizing the last of the details by the end of the week.

The title of my third book is, “2011:  The Year I was in Love”.  It will contain my work from March of 2011 through the end of that year.

I’m publishing it as both a paperback through CreateSpace and Amazon and as an ebook through the Kindle store.  I’ll post links as soon as everything is ready, which should be within the next week.


Tender

Take care whom you hold.
Unworthy arms will never
treat you with respect.


The Eye of the Storm

All of the noise
from the girls and boys
makes me crawl in my skin;
their damnable din
challenges my poise.
