I get the impression that dinner is burning. Yup, it's burning! Friends shouldn't let friends cook and write. #amwriting   #writing

I don't understand how any city official or police, particularly one within a large urban and/or minority population can be caught off guard anymore when public fury suddenly manifests. It is no longer acceptable or even possible to go about business as usual, and hope no one notices.
In Baltimore, the Bloods and the Crips street gangs are putting down their weapons and are marching together against police brutality. That sounds like a good plan, but the police see it another way.

Story
Tagline
I write poetry and fiction. I read to sate myself. Books are food. And I am one hell of a glutton.
Introduction
I work as a freelance writer. The decision was a big deal, because even though I've written most of my life, I never shared it with anyone. Now, I'm stepping out, and little by little, people are reading my work. I want to do more, and just see what happens.
Bragging rights
I can still laugh at life, in spite of myself.

Writer. Amateur Poet. Blogger. Gleeful nerd.
