Poetry That Doesn't Suck:

-Hallucinations Pertaining to Nothing

-Road Trip

-Titled

Existential Phenomenological Psychology (Or, Rooftop Daydreams) is a play. It is the only decent play I have written, and people tell me it is decent. Feel free to correct me on that one, in fact I'd rather you insult my writing--and even me personally than not comment at all. The play is a bit trippy, but I reccomend it. (it's been said that it was the best thing I ever wrote)

Lester 'Lefty' Bostick is a short story that I'm currently working on. It's about a fundamentalist Christian who gets a vision from God in heavy traffic and ends up denting the car in front of him which happens to belong to Jenny Christopher who is a very strong atheist. Read at your own risk, reviews will be reciprocated.

If you would like to read Uprooted in its entirety, Ovch has it. We co-wrote it, and she has the full story up.

Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money.
