Harvest Time by Liz Davinci

‘The new music video for Harvest Time is released today and I’m excited to share it!  The premise of the song has to do with exploitation of the common man by capitalism. It’s a sad struggle.  It’s a hard struggle. But the “common man” plays his role often rather well in this struggle.  It is…

Two Birds by John Patrick Robbins

Mitch hated the memories of the slaughter house, it was the job he knew would haunt him until his dying day . The dried blood in the air , death was an all too familiar smell that lingered and was enough to make you sick . It was weird but made easy with modern technology….

Why I don’t remember my Aunt Letty by E F Fluff

I was seven or eight when my parent told me I was adopted. It happened over dinner. “Yeah” Flippant, I was initially too worried whether there would be enough gravy for me to make my potato swamp. It wasn’t a big deal – I think I’d always known – like I’d always known I was…

An Extreme Cure by Ian Lewis Copestick

An Extreme Cure One thing I’ve noticed when I’ve been In the hospital with my Dad, for his Radiotherapy, is  how friendly everybody is in The Cancer Department.

Mittens and The Economist by E F Fluff

They told me he deserves what he had coming to him. That it was about time. That, he’d always been a bit of an asshole. It was a wonder it’d taken so long. They often say that.   An asshole? When we were young, when we were kids; he always hit to hurt. Always went…

The Ukulele Album by The Besties

‘The story behind the album by Felice Arena I have to thank Ruby, my lively and precocious character in THE BESTIES books for being the inspiration behind the creation of the album. Throughout the series Ruby loves to play her ukulele and make up songs. While I was writing the lyrics for her I sent…

Wines and Walks by Eoghan Lyng

Wines and Walks   Wine lies on her fingertips The red silhouettes her breast Addressed, to her lover so much Younger than she. Needles wheeling the pillowtip And it slipped, the sharded glass Cutting the finger form, and of it Crashed the blood. Many a man has loved her, Many more tried, trying too Hard, too little, too…
