MY CITY IS GREY – An Impromptu Interview W/ Lois E. Linkens.

Originally posted on A Global Divergent Literary Collective:
A few moons ago, a few glasses of wine decided that Lois needed a spotlight tossed onto her, and so this impromptu (and unprofessional, because I’m not a professional) interview was begun simply for appreciation. Enjoy learning more about her! ? Q: I’ve been made aware that…

the perfect marriage

my scent, not his scent, but by some changeling blood could spread the same smile on halloween. on christmas waking up in blankets it didn’t fall asleep in. there’s bricks that hold down a red bottlebrush flower from 1994. remember, she called you honeysuckle, and thought rats had no bones. i remember my small hand […]
