100 – Small Game

Nothing lofty for the final sonnet; I’m sorry to disappoint you. If there’s one thing you can always rely upon me for, it will be my inability to muster solemnity at the appropriate moments. I’ve been fortunate enough not to have to stand beside many caskets so far in my life, but it’s pretty much …

63 – Cold Cuts

At least once a day, I find a reason to end a sentence with, “…but then, I’m a bad person.” I grew up with the internet and the dark web both, and once upon a time thought it made me a Cool Chickā„¢ to put up with the guys I knew sending me gore porn …

Your little asteroid-mining dudes are so breathtakingly stupid that they can and will: Build themselves into the wall like a very proactive Poe protagonist Get so stressed out by their need to pee that they stop fixing the …
