 It was a typical cold and wintry day in Detroit when I awoke at 3:55am to take off to work VIA a public bus to the radio station I work with. WRQ 700 AM, of Detroit was trying to keep the ears by the radio and the eyes away from the TV with our music made in the fifties and the early sixties. I would start the day at 5:45am going through the program plan which was a usual rundown of what was expected. Every Saturday would be a test from The United States Civil Defense System, or ot...

Retrospective 57

Such a little difference

The places we went

All the history I learned

The things you got to do

The things you got to see

Such a little difference

The lives we have led

All that we have become

Broken and fooled

The world thought I would win

 

Such a little difference

The advantages apportioned

All the history I made

The things I got to do

The things I got to see

Such a little difference

The Dot Com, Chapter Four

He sat in his prison cell with his orange jump suit on, sitting on the bottom of the bed that consisted of a green wool covering that didn't appear comfortable to the average taste. He could hear someone approaching beyond the cell bars. Knowing it was a guard making his or her way down, chances were ninety five percent good that the guard was a man though. It was one set of footsteps with no jingle in chains to go along with. From expe...

There She Is Boys

A few years ago I decided to take my two teenage boys up Big Fall Creek and show them the house I lived in when I was twelve years old.

 

"Yep. She's right around this corner, boys", I said, as we broke into a clearing alongside the road.

 

Where the old house used to set was nothing but waist high grass. The structure had long ago fallen sideways into a pile of bleached timbers, the shingled roof covered with a carpet of lush moss.

Admin Frank's Pledge

I pledge allegiance to the flag, which I can burn if I get mad, of the United (Divided) States of America--maybe--and to the Republic (which is now a Democracy) for which it stands (we're not certain), one nation under God (not really, sorta kinda, depending on who you ask), indivisible (which has something to do with ghosts), with liberty and justice for all (if you're lucky, and again, depending on who you ask).


Whew...

It was past two in the morning of the 12th of January in 2004, just two weeks past my exit out of the United States Army. I had went to bed without too many cares in the world besides finding a job, I had endured a harsh time in the service of eleven months and three days, never making permanent party status due to a leg injury. When I was discharged, I didn’t give a rat’s behind but to live life, something I couldn’t really do much while I was under the realm of a dri...

“You gotta learn how to stand-up for yourself.” Rudy said when he closed the door.

Glen didn't reply.

Rudy then noticed for himself how cold it was when the arctic wind hit his face, “Christ, its cold as fuck out here.”

“It's eighteen degrees out.” Glen told him.

“What the fuck ever, it's too cold.” To which Rudy replied.

He took a step off of the wooden porch of their Eastpointe, Michigan home, ...
