SHOOTING STARS AND OTHER SURPRISES - SHORT STORIES
-On the road again.
-Passing horses riding in trailers.
-Looking through old pages from one of my notebooks and I notice a coffee stain in the shape of Texas so I outline it with my pencil.
-A friendly white bug is crawling round my knee.
-Coca-Cola and Cracker Barrels.
-Somewhere near Baltimore.
-That bug is tickling my wrist now — climbing round my arm hairs and making its way across my hand.
-Glad I did not kill it.
-This little friend keeps letting me know he’s still here.
-Like a lover rolling over in the night.
-Sensual moments make all the difference.
-I’m wearing a pineapple tank top…She would have loved that.
-That bug friend has disappeared.
-I wonder, what made him go?
Somewhere near Baltimore -- 6/29/16
