The Producer

You smirked at the producer as you made it apparent you didn’t care if you upset his carefully oiled spiel. He was half-way through gouging some poor schlock for the funds to make yet another totally mediocre movie. The producer is a fat man, even his calves are twice the size of hams, and he wears layers o

Salty Angler 12.14.16 Reviewed in Konk Life

The Dangling Salty Digiddy Dog Angler, or whatever it’s called, the new restaurant, as of a year and a bit. The corner of Duval and Amelia has changed names more often than a wanted felon. The turn over was sometimes due to bad management (read: extreme cocaine habits) or the

Say Hello

You awaken, it could be any day, at any time. The clock reads one minute after midnight and that means, after some basic calculations, it’s your birthday. Sickening thought. Officially old. You don a jacket over your ankle length nightdress and pull on a hat. You do not stop in front of the hall mirror on the

The Big Room

You blew on out with your new girl and your old bad habits. You have her believing things will be different, now that all is new. You’ve both agreed to delud

Boys and Toys

“I gotcha!” he thought, watching her figuring she was older than he. Since turning twenty he’d enjoyed a decade of women vying for his attention. He was habituated to pockets filled with phone numbers. She dawdled along alone preoccupied and when he ‘bumped’ into her, she said, R

Florida’s Finest

I needed to drive my car somewhere to do something. Except I could not find my car. It was not where I had left it up which was parked out front of my house. It was gone. I moseyed down the street. I took longer walks around even farther blocks pressing the panic button on my keychain. I came home in a state o
