A short ditty on tight menswear.

A little ditty on leggings and how...interesting they are.

 

Oh! Leggings are tight, and look quite nice. If they were tighter, I'm sure it be nicer, to see a young bloke, a'flunkin' his junk; and I'm sure all the wenches would be quite charmed; Wherest their boyish companions are surely alarmed!

QUAINT #16 Vathek: An Arabian Tale by William Beckford

Vathek was created by William Beckford and appeared in Vathek: An Arabian Tale from an Unpublished Manuscript, with Notes Critical and Explanatory (1786). Beckford (1760-1844) was one of English literature's real oddities. He lived a life of scandal and extravagance, both financial and sexual, and even in the 21st century his name retains the… Continue

Digital

This morning begins with a screeching alarm

And the lost-wallet panic of a dream snatched away.

I seek pity from a digital clock

Without face, or arms, or a heartbeat of its own.

(There is only the droning hum of its light,

A garish green that flashes, “2:Late”)

 

I remember when clocks had second hands

Long, golden warnings of minutes to come

Abandoned for numbers that blink and change

Without gears, or chimes, or…

Stitches

It is so exhilarating to put the costume on for the first time.

 

Another tangible, visible asset joins all these other ethereal ideas that have surrounded who the character is. You read the script, and those lines go through your imagination and you see what you want her to be, but then you look in the mirror, and boom!   

 

The costume is always one of those last steps before you need to take a deep breath and take the plunge. All that homework, memorization,…

Fearful Symmetry, Chapter One

Fearful Symmetry Chapter One

I woke up in St. Mary’s ER, on one of those gurneys in a small treatment room.  My head ached.  So did my knees and right ankle.  

 

“Bran?”
Brannon, dozing in a chair across from my bed, sat up straight.   Her matte-black hair was smooshed and limp; most of her magenta lipstick had transferred onto the mouth of her Dr. Pepper bottle.  As she stood up, I saw her lace shrug was missing and her…
