IndieVengeance Day 2015

Last week I traveled to Dallas for an annual book signing known as IndieVengeance Day. We get together, the indies and I, once a year and hang out. We also sell books: small books, big books, books that climb on rocks. Okay, none of them climbed rocks, but a couple have ghosts, and that’s just as good.

The journey started in the air…

But quickly involved books and stress cubes.

Bright as Death

her explosive life-force
bright as death
could live a thousand
years surviving warlike
multiplicity, a waxing
moon and thoughts
near termination.

Blameless Haze

there’s a place where
oceans do not stop
because of sand and
imperfections shine
on water like a
transcendental wave

becoming lucent and
exempt from care
we kiss the
blameless haze.
