Freelance Begone (Poem)

He struggled to find, as hard as he looked, a freelance writing gig that he could book. He applied to several, begged for even more, but no one would give him the simplest chore. He guest wrote posts, all to no avail. No one wanted to pay him to tell their tale. Months and months,…

Spring On A Winter’s Day

Down a Long Lane – part 2

“Put the gun down.” Mikey spoke calmly, there was no hesitation in his voice.     Elijah tensed for a moment, as if he was realizing that there was now a gun pointed to his head.     “And who, do we have here?” the man in the fedora spoke, still not highly concerned.     “I’m the security guard at…

A case for Elon Musk

Most people think one of two ways about Elon Musk. Some think he’s the next savior of humankind- attempting to keep our species alive for centuries to come with new technology. Others think he’s a bored guy with a lot of money who blasts rocket ships into space for fun and makes electric cars. So…
