Hey Love!…

I met my wife in a library, introduced to her by an English Teacher. That's oddly poetic to me, for a wannabe writer to meet the love of his life in such a way. If the me of today were to hop into a time machine and go back and visit the 16-year-old me of yesterday,... Continue Reading →

Go Kinfolk, Go Kinfolk!

When I started driving, whenever I would leave the house, particularly with a group of friends, my mother would yell out, before I could even get out of the door, "Seatbelts, Speed limit." This was a reminder for us to wear our seatbelts and drive the speed limit. She still says that to me to this... Continue Reading →

Somnium Creaturae​…

I am alone. Floating in a timeless formless void. I attempt to move, but my body does not respond. I have no body. Where my arms and legs should be, there is nothing. All around me there is nothing. I am alone, floating in a timeless and formless void, without form. I do not know... Continue Reading →

Herby New Year

It's January 1st, 2019 12:10 AM. My phone vibrates in my pocket. One of my best friends is calling. I answer. "Hello," I say. "Happy New Year, ugly ass..." the word ugly is pronounced with an extra added emphasis on the 'ug', trailing off dramatically at the 'l' and placing little to no emphasis on... Continue Reading →

I have a Note….

Soooooo, I have epilepsy. Well I technically have epilepsy because around the age of 23 I began having unexplained seizures. I had one, went to the doctor about it, they said they had no idea why I had it and basically the world may never know. I shrugged my shoulders and thought "Well hell, if... Continue Reading →

Gunsmoke…

I used to be convinced that I would die young. And by that I mean, there was a certain time, I think around the age of 11 or 12, that I was pretty sure I would not live past the age of 23. I don't know what it was that gave me that idea. Perhaps... Continue Reading →

Street’s Disciple

When I was 15 I discovered the music of the rapper Nas and my life changed. I use to be a rapper myself... but that was a long time ago. Like, in high school. I wasn't a rapper for very long though, I mean relatively speaking, if we are looking at my life over the larger scope of time,... Continue Reading →
