Late Winter Sky

Wisps of cirrus Scattered haphazardly On a cornflower sky Petal-like drifters Carried by the crawl-breeze  To their destined horizon Matching the sun’s cool stare In the false February spring.

Killing Time In NYC

There was nothing ornate or sparkly about the dagger in her hand. It was her instrument of death.

She had learned that bruising lesson in Berlin a couple of years […]
