Poet at arms, I love to read and write short prose that's quick to but packs a punch!

Clean, effective presentation, certified.

"The courtyard is alive with the spit of angry bullets
And baked hard by the scorching sun.

Clouds of smoke drift in,
In patches,

And are,
Collected by moans,

That become tiny whirlwinds,
That suck at the dog tags on dead men’s chests."

Prepare to fly.
