Share

I was reading a book of poetry by Alex Dimitrov. Just picked it out of the lineup on my library’s ebook app. And, as I read, as often happens, I started hearing a poem in my head. I could useRead More

Nevermind

Share

All my thoughts and worries and emails and phone calls and worries and decisions were wiped out by an email. I’m not upset … oh, nevermind, yes I am. I really don’t appreciate how the state can make such aRead More
