...Somewhere beyond Bill's shack an afterwork radio had begun singing of folly and fate, and there she was with her ruined looks and her adult, rope-veined narrow hands, and her gooseflesh-white arms, and her shallow ears, there she was (my Lolita!), hopelessly worn at seventeen, with that baby, dreaming already in her of becoming a big shot and retiring around 2020 A.D.- and I looked and looked at her, and knew as clearly as I know I am to die, that I loved her more than anything I had ever seen or imagined on earth, or hoped for anywhere else. She was only a faint violet whiff and dead leaf echo of the nymphet... an echo on the brink of a russet ravine, with a far wood under a white sky, and brown leaves choking the brook, and one last cricket in the crisp weeds... but thank God it was not that echo alone that I worshiped. What I used to pamper among the tangled vines of my heart, mon grande peche radieux, had dwindled to its essence; sterile and selfish vice, all that I canceled and cursed. You may jeer at me, and threaten to clear the court, but until I am gagged and half-throttled, I will shout my poor truth. I insist the world know how much I loved my Lolita, this Lolita, pale and polluted, and big with another's child, but still grey eyed, still sooty lashed, still auburn and almond, still Carmencita, still mine; Changeons de vie, ma Carmen, allons vivre quelque part ou nous ne serons jamais separes; Ohio? The wilds of Massachusetts? No matter; even if those eyes of hers would fade to myopic fish... even then would I go mad at the mere sight of your dear wan face, at the sound of your racous young voice, my Lolita.

I got the no-review blues... please pander to my ego. It makes me warm and fuzzy inside.

This State She's In by AriadneEthereal reviews
An anti-poem really. A very personal response to a frightening new trend.

Crocodile Street
This is a true story.

No Jazz
A long musing about death, although firmly tongue-in-cheek with its morbidness. It's the first thing I've been happy with for quite a while.

The Simple Path reviews
The first story I've had the courage to upload here; slightly pretentious, but it might be okay with some work. Deals mainly with relationships, simplicity and the hypocrisy of those who follow both. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Emily reviews
About the realization everyone has to make someday. I'm really not too happy with this, but my attempts at revision just muck it up more. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Vicious reviews
I seem to have a thing for tribute poems, eh? this is one I wrote about Sid Vicious and it's rather close to my heart. on it's second draft and it still doesn't feel complete.

you reviews
about being in love, somewhat unwillingly. unlike most of my other work it's somewhat autobiographical, so it's rather to the point.

the War reviews
about WWII, but not really. as usual, in the style i like to call 'the bad drug experience ramble'.

Tears reviews
Whee, tense ambiguity! This really doesn't have a hidden meaning; it's just about a very bad drug trip. Warning: probably the strangest thing I've ever written.

Burn reviews
Wrote it for a challenge, which seems to have closed down, so I'm posting it here. From the POV of a bag lady looking at highskool graduation... dumber than it sounds.

Entertainment reviews
(AKA 'Hecuba Goes Temporarily Insane'.) Vaguely about the evils of teevee. Contrary to popular belief I am not on any sort of drug.

Needles reviews
Short, sweet, and crappy. Vaguely about watching a friend crash and burn.
