YOuve the perseverance and talent of John Gardner; fingers crossed, here, as an unnamed insect flits upon an animated black and white WINDSCREEN (moves toward remote)(otherwise pitch darkness) movie eg:geez it's Donna Reed, returns to find guide---holy siege---it's Green Dolphin Street.

He snorted awake. Any day you can wake up without restraints is a good day. Supposing the water an eighth inch over everything, it appeared to be as good a day as any good day, 1/365th, that route South. They say you can go all the way from the Twin Cities (or is it Duluth?) down Highway 61 to Ft.Worth.

I would phone you.

You were happy, you seemed happy to me,…

Train Blue Flash Fiction, Experimental

He wrote a new song, never got the gong, sipping his bong, never gone for long

then carpel tunnel, the sky in a funnel, the PO on four days, his diet, frito lays

he couldn't sell a damn thing, let alone sing, so he took to champagne, hisself to blame,

no goal to strive, no car to drive, no authority to take a dive, if a bear, he'd swat the hive

now but a jester, he fled the sequester, back to the bar, he runs again into Chester

he thought well shucks, why not cut and…

Progressive means Reversing capitalUSt$' Privatizing Gains, Socializing Costs

There’s more than one thing I would like to know from all candidates in contention for further nurturing progressive human capacities for love for our own species and others, for empathy, for truth, work and love for self-worth derived from contributing to the common good…

Black, Like Me?: A literary question and challenge

Most of us believe that we can write, otherwise we wouldn't be here.

Most of us believe that we are of sound mind, fertile imagination, and are socially aware and socially conscientious.

So here's the question and the challenge:

Without any substantive change in narrative and plot as written originally, and without any negative impact on popularity and audience acceptance, which of the following title characters, do you think, might well have been portrayed (or cast) as…

He Rolled Seven ... ....Chapter Two

{Throwback Thursdays. Soon To Be A Regular Feature}





And by the time Big Cat's lithe helo lighted upon the narrow, blunted pyramid roof--- the helo at first invisible with ultra-finagled flage, whisper smooth--- the chrome-like edifice was fully under siege.

Only gun cabinets were unlocked.

The Most Gripping Thing I've Read in Years

It’s not a book in my preferred mystery/thriller genre, not a book at all, or even short story, but this New Yorker article, about the best-selling author of the mystery/thriller The Woman in the Window. The article is a very long read—12,000 words—but I scarfed it down in one sitting, even though I’d laid down for a much needed nap. Within minutes I was wide awake.

The writer…

Hey, Where did Margaret go?

The woman in the back office was transforming bit by bit each day. No one noticed the incense at first, or the soft music, full of chimes and long sustained notes.

Her wardrobe went from Grandma-shops-at-Kohl's to flowing long jackets to coarse linen robes without any of the busy young women around her looking up from their laptops.

When one had a fight with her boyfriend, she appreciated the chocolate that appeared on her desk.

Another, who had made a very early…

Tearing Around

There'd been news purporting an Alzheimer causing sap, from an obscure XYZ tree somewhere in South America.

Such report ought rank at the top of the sounding probe within the medical industrial complex, what with the subsequent demise of the person, the heart-broken caregivers, the erstwhile pharma RD staff, the pill-peddlers shoulder to shoulder with Congress-fluke who golf the highnoon away, as victim slowly, passionately expires.…

{}Fifty AMP {} (tribute to Richard Pryor. 50% of {}Fifty AMP{} was written by RB James, Editor at Large, Our Salon)

Joseph Campbell knew better. He stuck with the evidence, mostly. I’m not expert anything, won’t ever be, either. MAHI is winding down still before the 2000 election... on Coronado with the Clintons in late June, playing with the kids of all ages On The Beach, well before dawn. Campbell's soup used to be thicker. Hot and good, for whom the microwave prompts. This can't be oleo on the soda crackers. Sharp shooter medal blurrily snatched at BONG AB. Deftly pinned by the Honorable…

Vacancy

I would set a mood just like my youthful grandmother, aunts and mother would set out green plates and beige bowls ringed by burgundy and forest green lines most Sundays after Mass.

A large tin pot of chicken soup simmered on a gas range. Grandpa in herringbone pants, suspender-ed, had been home from the South Pacific for six, seven maybe even eight years by then and never slept real good, loving even cold coffee, sometimes…

Sanctuary Or Prison: Elites Live Where We Let Them.

        

       I’m not writing about the Trumpers, or even the Trumps. God bless them for not being bright enough to be fascists, every one. White elites walled themselves off from the world long before their cast offs and religious nuts blew here from a broken Europe. 

        What failed there has never succeeded here, ever. After the kooks,  fanatics and greedy raped and pillaged a disease ravaged continent they gained enough steam run their own show, but the economic model…

Right Down The Drain

          The estuary told me the truth, and I was there to listen. Up river the MIC was trying to run the empire at the same time it was killing the planet. I only saw evidence of the planet killing first hand. Whatever the MIC flushed down the drain wound up in the estuary. 

           The MIC was all I knew outside of the estuary, but I never knew it, because it was all I knew. The MIC was not a lie, but it was never the truth my parents and so many others believed in. They…
