Dinner for one

Half an hour to write before working a double. The second of four. Coffee shop from 6-2 and then the restaurant from 4-10. I think I feel tired but I might be too tired to tell.   No time for video games or porn or drugs. None of the vices that sap the modern man. But no purpose... Continue Reading →

Some days are like that

Editor's Note: Originally written sometime in 2018 and posted on my old anonymous blog. Don't forget to buy my book. Another week has passed. I've been sleeping 8 hours a night. Feeling rested. Still there’s an aimlessness, an indifference. I’m complacent and cold. My clarity doesn’t drive me to do anything. Sleepless or rested, my... Continue Reading →

Everything I do, I do it for you

Back in march when I moved into my apartment and paid my first month of rent and the security deposit and the deposit on the electric bill and all the other bills, I did not tell my landlords I had two cats. If I had told them I would have paid a pet deposit and my rent would... Continue Reading →

Every Lover Leaves

Editor’s note: This piece was written in november of 2020 and revised over the last few days. Don’t forget to buy my novel.   I woke up without knowing if I’d slept.

The Piercing Rattle of Empty Shells

Morning before work. Thought I had a three-day weekend but then I looked at the schedule and saw that I have two. I needed those three days. I need five days, ten days, ten years, the rest of my life.   But I will work almost every day because I am a man and we are cursed to toil and... Continue Reading →

Mel’s Feet

Mel sat on the side of the bed and smelled his feet. They smelled worse than the night before. Twice a day he soaked them and applied an over-the-counter ointment. He covered his feet in a fine drying powder that left ghostly footprints in the hall.   The morning air was stale. No fans or air conditioning... Continue Reading →

Another Product in the Wall

My novel comes out soon. No official release date yet. Maybe a week, maybe two. If you are reading this then you should buy it. I do not care if you read it but I want your money.   Use my book to appear sophisticated and special. A supporter of underappreciated talent. Any pretentious nitwit can pretend to...

Dog Days of Spring

Had two days off this week. Monday and Tuesday. It is now tuesday evening and my weekend lasted thirty seconds. I needed to get groceries and do my laundry and clean my house. Meal prep. Cook twenty two tasteless lunches and dinners and portion them in plastic containers. Spend four hours boiling breast in a pot so I can... Continue Reading →
