Yoseph Vladimir: Cat

Story the First Yoseph Vladimir, Joey to his humans, stalks the underbrush listening for prey. He pauses, listens, and moves on. He sniffs the air, moves one paw forward, stops again. Patience, thy name is cat. Finally, prey makes a mistake, shows itself to the tireless feline. Yoseph launches himself at the mouse, catches it… Continue reading Yoseph Vladimir: Cat

Enter the Maze

I am going to publish a book of shorts soon. The stories and poems are picked, the cover art is done (and beautiful!), I have the back of the book written up (usually difficult for me) but the editing is not done. I didn’t know what I wanted as a cover, but asked a friend… Continue reading Enter the Maze


The depression creeps in and I wonder is it all really worth it? The silence interrupts and I wonder, will there ever be sound again? Why not end it? Does anyone care? Do I care? In this moment, the answer is no. I don’t care. And I don’t feel like anyone else does, either. But… Continue reading Depression

The passage of time seems surreal. Has it really been that long? Has it really only been that long? The pain is less, but the memories of you are still fresh I don’t cry as much anymore, but my tears still threaten. I think sometimes, that I am ready to move forward. Then a memory… Continue reading Seven

Bishop’s Bar: Take Two (Hang Over)

“Gimme another.” No siree, says he. Refused service- tossed out stumbling to the door grabbing for the knob missing hitting glass hurting knuckles reaching again seeing double finding the knob grasping cold brass pulling open the door hitting his head. Neon sign blinking door slamming into his ass red sign burning his eyes stabbing into… Continue reading Bishop’s Bar: Take Two (Hang Over)

Blank Page

Note: Wrote this in college. Find it very fitting for NaNoWriMo. The blank page stares at him, mocking him. It is like the universe before it was born. Vast and empty, waiting for God, or science, to change it. A black spot appears, as a star or planet; an idea born of God, the writer.… Continue reading Blank Page
