Reverse Rumi

Always live in regret. The past is ever present. There are no new days; you are the same person you were before. Believe that today will be no better than yesterday. It’s about looking down with despair and looking backward. Don't look for new opportunities that the Almighty has planned for you. Hardship disheartens, and does not...

Writers’ Camp

RUPTURED DEPARTURE

Establishing my negative credentials. I curse at work, to myself, but loud enough for everyone to notice. I make fun of ridiculous rules and sneer at the company dogs I'm surrounded by.

SLAMMING IT DOWN

I listened to a lousy radio station demand money as I drove home from work yesterday and the sales pitch was worse than any advertisement. Some amateur disc jockey bitch nagged me with a mother's whine, the kind of sound old girlfriends make immediately prior to being dumped. I listened to her anguish and I cringed. Then her...

IDIOT VICTORY

A dirty little demon is crawling up my pants leg determined to gnaw off my genitals with its sharp little demon teeth but I grab it by its hag hair and slam its head against the corner of my desk, then I fling its solid little body across the room into one of my...
