Love

No Bleeding Heart

No Bleeding Heart

I write to you and my tears are the ink. ~Jaume Cabré I was riding my bicycle on LSD, that’s the Lake Shore Drive trail, not the mind-expanding chemical though I do wonder at the mind-enhancing experience of riding LSD on LSD.

Value of a Kiss

Value of a Kiss

Or, it may be that I have blindly crested the summit and am in […]
