White Lady Dressed in Death

The Opiate Literary Review has published my poem, “White Lady Getting off the Bus” which is a surrealistic poem about a white lady getting off a bus dressed in death playing the flute of life.

White Lady Dressed in Death

White lady
Dressed in death

Playing games
Green blues on a flute

Black man dressed in life
Playing symphonic rock on a drum

A bus pulls up
Vomiting out passengers

Lining them up on a red dot
For worshiping the god of death

Does it make any sense
Unless you are already there?

Ariel Chart has published my poem, “Imagining the End of the World” and my short story, “Just Another Night in the City of Angels”

I saw the four horsemen of the apocalypse
Beckoning me to join them on their midnight ride

Death, pestilence, plague and war
They were ready to ride into the sunset

Spreading their hate with them
As they led the world to its foretold doom

The end days were approaching they told me
And their time was near

I begged them to hold off
To give us more time

To work things out
They laughed and said

Time waits for no one
We have a divine plan to work out

You have been warned before
And will be warned again and again

But soon it will be time
And we must do our duty
To bring an end to this benighted world

And fulfill our destiny
And yours

But for now
We will let you sleep

And let you prepare yourself
For the time is near

The end of the world is coming
It is later than you think

Soon soon the antichrist will come
Uniting the world

And leading the battles too come
Before the end of the world

And mankind ceases to exist
Just dust in the wind

Of a dead planet
In a forgotten corner of an uncaring universe
All part of God’s plan
