Anthology News

Just downloaded my free PDF & ordered my print copy:

Storm Cycle 2014 Cover

Storm Cycle 2014: The Best of Kind of a Hurricane Press is a compilation of the editors’ favorite pieces from the six 2014 online journals as well as our six 2014 print anthologies.

My contribution is a 5-haiku selection from my “Haiku Stupid” collection, originally published in High Coupe in June of last year, including:

sixteen chickens cross
I curse the road for its width
stupid slowpoke birds

You can read all five HERE.

I Got Worms In My Ears

I’m hoping that somebody out there can tell me exactly why—at 4:45 AM—I find myself wide awake and working on the railroad, all the livelong day, and for no other reason than just to pass the time away; or why I hear the whistle blowing, or why I have to rise up so early in the morn; or why I have to hear the captain shouting at Dinah, telling her to blow her horn.

Speaking of which, maybe someone could tell me who the hell is that banjo-strumming idiot in the kitchen with her, and why don’t they know the words—because I’m sick to death of them singing that “Fee, fie, fiddly-i-o / Fee, fie, fiddly-i-o-o-o-o / Fee, fie, fiddly-i-o” nonsense, keeping me from getting back to sleep.

This is no way to start a weekend.
