When I toweled the top of my reheated pizza slice—miracle of miracles!—the grease stain gathered in the likeness of our great leader! Very presidential!

The first of you evangelicals, white supremacists, war criminals, oligarchs, CEOs, terrorists, or evangelical white-supremacist war-criminal oligarch CEO terrorists to message me a sweet cash-money offer could hang this portrait in your living room, game room, slave quarters, or coffin by next week.

1. The internet is a horrible creature
2. I am disgusted by Laura Derm

I am heartened my short story "Gateway to the Rest" was a finalist in Glimmer Train's Short Story Award for New Writers. You may see the list of winners and finalists hereGlimmer Train is a great literary journal, Susan and Linda are strong editors/readers, and it's nice know the work means something to someone. I feel a bit old to be in the running for anything called new, but such is the complex nature of literary fiction, late blooming, and life. The work continues. "Gateway to the Rest" remains in revision and I hope one day it finds a place to be, where you might read. A whole body of new stories and poems are in revision, searching for places to be.

When the contingent employee
falls in the gone forest
nobody makes or hears
a sound but she.
