This story was inspired by the style and structure of Ambrose Bierce's "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge;" in high school, I fell in love with the way Bierce used perspective and flashback, and I wanted to tell the story of a different condemned man using that same style. Please read and review!

Chasing Smoke from the Firework Cigar
I wrote this in memory of my dog, Fudge, who died on 3/24/08. The title refers to the day he burned half his whiskers off at our 4th of July party; my dad set up some small rockets in the driveway, and we looked away for 2 seconds, and like a true Jack Russell Terrier, he stole the rocket and tried to run away with it hanging out of his mouth like a cigar. I still miss him.

Haiku 1 reviews
Written as a response to an assignment in a college writing class. We discussed ways to allow our students to use writing in other content areas, like history; one text suggested we have students respond with poetry to historical events such as Columbine, the Holocaust, or Rwanda; and if my students have to do it, I like to prove I can do it with them. This was my haiku on Rwanda.

I'll admit - this was a high school assignment. But in that confession - hey, it's a pretty darn good high school assignment. My first attempt at a sonnet, and honestly, maybe the best one I'll ever write.

Another Dream reviews
What vast stories are hidden behind a single sentence in a vast book? And what does it mean to have a dream that makes you "suffer?" As there isn't a "Religious" fiction category, I stuck this where I could; this is for all those who wonder about the stories and people in the Bible we never get to know.

I was raised in an overly religious household - think "Carrie," but with less blood. Fortunately, it never damaged my faith; but it left me a bit cynical about my parents' version of it. I couldn't get the computer to cooperate and let me give the poem the shape it originally had, but the message still holds.

I wrote this poem in response to the first infidelity I ever experienced - but I think the feeling applies to any emotion we take time to get rid of.
