It was the afternoon/evening rush hour. A line of cars waiting at a short signal. This street is always packed during this time. As I walked by, I heard one car honking a very long honk. It’s when you hold your hand down on the horn and not let up. It’s shorthand for extremely angry/agitated.…

I can’t write about anything else except Houston, Texas, and how the city has endured the near-biblical proportions of flood water by Hurricane Harvey.

I don’t like cats. Well, not true. I like cats only when they’re behaved and spayed/neutered. Any other cat, I hate. HATE. Apologies to any cat-loving readers; I hope we can still be friends. There’s no reason to hate unless there’s a reason to hate. I have a reason to hate. I have an outdoor…

I remember watching the commercials for OxiClean when Billy Mays was still alive. The product, like any infomercial product, seemed to be a miracle product. It was magical. Billy could make you buy it, but I didn’t buy it because I didn’t have a need for it. Then, one day, I had a need for…

Just FYI, my third poetry book is available for free with Amazon Kindle Unlimited. Paperback also available too. It’s the shortest of the three books.
