    Wide awake at 4:00am and unable to sleep for the booming silence and the deep damage this silence has done to everyone, the duplicitousness all the way around — himself included — he rises naked from the floor on which his bed is made and sits down at the kitchen table.

  • On Dogs, Devils, Sex, & True Morality

    January 6th, 2018 | The Woman Who Made a Pact With the Devil | journalpulp | 5 Comments

    In response to some of the most recent blowback anent my literature: The Woman Who Made a Pact with the Devil is not a satanic story.

    This is the last and longest video in the course, and I urge you to watch it through to the end, because there are some surprises: Do you know what Google ethicists call cell phones?  Tiny slot machines.

    CHAPTER 1   She hadn’t expected to like him. He was too skeletal, for one thing, his eyes set a little too deeply inside his skull, his gaze a little too unabashed, too knowing. Longish black hair swept up off a high forehead, with sea-green eyes and a prominent brow-ridge, he reminded her of a […]

  • 101 Things To Do If College Is Not For You

    The most successful people in life aren’t particularly gifted or talented. They become successful, rather, by wanting to be successful. Genetic giftedness is a figment.

  • Autumn

    Summer dies. The long days wane away. The heat in the sky melts like lead to liquid pools. The hills beyond are baked as white as clay. Now creep in the gentle autumn ghouls Trailing their silken shawls of a Lethe- an mist. Shadows warp, gourds enlarge. And now what is always there but not […]
