A Different Kind of Awesome

A different kind of awesome is coming right near you. It’s genuine not fake and  will not eat your cake. Not the Cookie Monster. Definitely not Prime Minister. A different kind of awesome to blow against the wind. Diffuse a tide of hate. Opens heaven’s gate. Unlocks unusual principles. Comes up with frank solutions. A … Continue reading

Why Waitressing was not for me.

Waitressing was not for me. A job trial, nice cup of tea? No, try a high street Italian restaurant. Where my one great pull was boss wanted me to tutor his child. Saw I had an MA in Creative Writing. They all seemed really a pleasant bunch. I washed up, served, stacked cups. But while … Continue reading

Winter Solstice

Winter willow. Solstice, skimming like water fowl on wet limp grass. The bus stops. Doors buzz closed. Cerebral chatter despite the brain chill. Flakes of true temperate talk.
