Random Spit

TrappedInFlesh/ April 17, 2018

Usually I’ll grab breakfast at a local diner or at the golden arches.   But because I shouldn’t and really can’t be spending money as if I had it pouring into my pockets every Friday today I had a bowl of cereal.  I sat in front of the TV

Wallet (Fiction)

TrappedInFlesh/ April 14, 2018

“We’ll share the soup.  You want a beer or soda?”  Their fight has lasted three days, she misses his affection. “My treat.” She reaches for her wallet. “I’ll take a beer. Is the soup super spicy?” Spicy hot gives him heartburn.  She doesn’t say anything, just orders the

Hip-hop Vape Kids

TrappedInFlesh/ February 19, 2018

The other day on route to my job I was listening to the radio.  Power 106 where hip-hop doesn’t live.  After one the trendy songs they repeat multiple times every day a commercial aired informing listeners that vaping is dangerous and kids are doing it and that that

Glasses

TrappedInFlesh/ February 14, 2018

New glasses.  Reading. Left eye. Everything skewed. Normal they said.  Hard to believe. Accustomed. In a week or so they said I’ll be. Clean and crisp.  Words now easy to read. A bit off. For a few days things will seem. They said. Never adjusted, now they believe.

TrappedInFlesh/ January 26, 2018

I’m tired of running.  It’s so much easier when alone, life.   Only thing that matters is what you want, need or think you need and nothing else.  For years I was single because I wanted to avoid the heartache and the stress that comes when loving someone.   I’m

Went to the eye doctor today to get an exam. Forty four years old and now I need two sets of glasses. Don’t know how I feel about it. I guess I really don’t care. One pair will be for all day use. My “distance” glasses they called

School

TrappedInFlesh/ January 14, 2018

Years ago I took a drawing class and forgot I kept a few of my assignments.  I did good. I received a high ‘B.’ A week ago a coworker was talking about needing an art bag for his class.  I still had mine sitting in the closet from

Christmas

TrappedInFlesh/ December 28, 2017

Every year the stress is the same.  If I don’t buy anything for my family they’ll think I don’t love them.  We’ve all been programmed so well. I know very well that nothing can represent the love I have for my family.  I love them with all that

TrappedInFlesh/ December 27, 2017

My job is only sixteen miles away from where I live but it takes me a bus, a train then another bus to get there and the same to get back, two hours, one and a half if I’m lucky, three hours if it’s Saturday or Sunday and
