String O’ Tears

For a friend…. A message, a song, prose of awareness to carry to your fair-weather friend That really great one who utterly love-bombs you, repeatedly – if not ceaselessly Bombards you hard enough to make you forget your own fugging mind … Continue reading

Cupid’s Fraudballs – Deep Love Times 1,001

So, not every love story resembles the Harlequin Romance model or the Dr. Phil / Oprah recommendations of ‘healthy’, nor are they as far off the chain as the trailer park trashy gymnastics  of the Jerry Springer couplings either. Sometimes they’re … Continue reading
