He noticed her

sitting there, reading

Trying to capture
some of her bookish

he prodded hopefully
“Ahh. The plot thickens.”

“Like old Hollandaise”
she replied, without
looking up

He turned on the
television, swearing
off books

I am a poet, writer and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 to help rebuild the worst public school system in America. It is a huge challenge to say the least. Now, after ten years, I have returned home to my native Midwest. Writing - in many different forms and ways - has saved me untold thousands in therapy bills throughout the years. Reading my writings may do either the same - or just the opposite - for you. Read at your own risk, as I do not offer writer malpractice insurance. ;-{) I hope you enjoy what you read here.
