Party Under the Pyramids -- Wiki-Coups

Party Under the Pyramids -- Wiki-Coups Revolutions run on many fuels. They can run on guns, diamonds, cocaine or poppies, technology, charisma. But all revolutions depend on two things, oppression and ideas. We could probably reduce those two to one because oppression is itself an idea. The first t...

Re: Said December to May

Thanks for reading my little fable. I had fun with it. It's just a little sketch of the contemporary. As usual I'm trying to let the particular evoke the general. Either that or I'm watching too many Nora Ephron movies. :D Old woman to old man: "Whay do you like young women?" Old man to old woman: "...

Said December to May

Said December to May "Dad," said Jayne through her mouthful of tofu lasagna, "don't you see that you'll have Alzheimer's before she can sign up for AARP?

Re: Do you prefer writing poetry?

interesting observations the problem with words meaning different things to different readers is something every writer must resolve in his own way. It's a fact of life, though. You can't be sure that whatever tone and inflection that you hear when you see a group of words is going to be even vaguel...

Gotta Lotta Gall

(The gall bladder is where we store our bile. Bile is bitter, bitter as gall. Yet we have a special organ in which to carry our bitterness. We carry it around so long that it sometimes turns to stone. Gall bladders should all be removed at birth.) All your bitterness and bile is put into a pile a re...
