Crow's Flight

Horror speculative Gothic Murder death crow stabbing

A man sacrifices a woman to his god only for there to be a snag. Shame, that. This is another self indulgent Gothic story of mine, short and punchy and based in the same building as Black Building Session.

I got up really early this morning in June to get some nice shots of the sun rising over the meadows of the river Regnitz in Erlangen, Germany. When I was just leaving I saw this crow sitting on a low branch of a nearby bush and was lucky that I had the tele lens with me. Just a bird enjoying the early sun in the morning. A reminder for us all to relax and don’t rush too much.

Literary Fiction Romance death poetry Grief love poem Mourning

A bleak love poem originally published in the erstwhile With Candlelight on May 10, 2017. I hope those dudes are doing alright. The idea was to write a love poem that wasn't the usual platitudes. Someone who hopes they were loved enough that those who love them would be wracked with grief when they died, because they would feel the same if their lover died.

My first piece published by an actual literary journal, and also the one that marked a substantial uptick in quality in my opinion. This is the one that made me think "oh hey I might actually have something here," and it still has a soft spot in my heart. Originally published in the Fall 2016 issue of Two Cities Review.

"Am I dead?”  “You should be so lucky. All this craziness going on in your world.” As she spoke, a child who looked like Peter from The Snowy Day, the first book I remember reading, ran alongside us on the street in his red suit.
