One minute, “Sugar” cranked…

the next…


twisted metal,

shattered glass,

and what’s left of me covered in blood, my limbs twisted grotesquely. 

A white mist,

a brilliant light beckons,

and I can’t resist. 

Behind iridescent gates, with open arms, Jesus welcomes.

A Trucker's Life

    I leave to earn an income so my family will prosper, and enjoy the best things in life. Craving the freedom the open road provides, I sacrifice precious lost moments with them to quench my insatiable thirst: an office with no boundaries.

Pull Over

Red flashing lights.

Oh shit. 

Brandy giggles uncontrollably from the passenger seat.  I shoot her daggers quickly rolling down the window.

“License, registration.”

“She’s in love with the coco!” Brandy slurs. 

“Step out of the car.”

If looks kill, we’re both dead.

Party Over

     "Where have you hidden the liquor for tonight?”

     “I hid it in the barn, the folks will never look there!”

      A quick trek to the barn reveals the unthinkable. Empty fifths, passed out brown cows. Hot rum cows gone wrong. 

       Party over.
