No Quits Allowed

Like It Or Not

Even the sleep-impaired, sleep-deprived,
incoherent insomniac must comply:
there will be no exceptions made,
no exemptions granted.
Even though the earliest light
only magnifies the nothingness,
it is precisely that effect
which is to be recorded.
It is strictly forbidden
to reject the task, forbidden
to surrender to recalcitrance.

So: Now what, another Nagasaki?
Or will it just be the usual:
blueberry pancakes
and a pageful of denial?

On The Couch at Eunoia Review


I’m happy to note that my flash fiction piece—and I do mean ‘flash’ (123 words)—entitled Couched is up today at Eunoia Review. “Eunoia” means “beautiful thinking” or “beautiful thoughts.” They publish a great mix of prose and poetry on a daily basis, and I’m very happy that they chose my piece for publication today.

You can read Couchedhere.

I was fortunate to have another piece (‘Rehearsal’) chosen by Editor Ian Chung back in October of last year.
