  1. Support System, by James Merkin

    Bravo, James! You gave us a dark but relatively happy ending. I didn't like it. It made me shudder: powerful, but frightening. Would the protagonist have seen a twenty second piece about a murdered boy in the subway on the morning news bulletin, or would the boy have simply vanished? One or the other, probably. A perfect flash.
  2. A buddhist stops at a hot dog stand. "What would you like, sir," the vendor asks. "Make me one with everything."
  3. Caravaggio Eyes

    Props, Bi Janus. Just wonderful. To be read many times. I hope you don't mind me inserting an aide-mémoire for: ...'held fast Wondering at the mouth And its plain question' Boy with a Basket of Fruit (1593-94) by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio
  4. Rodriguez

    A wonderful poem and turn on, so thank you. And another thank you, too: I'd never heard of Rodriguez, never heard any of his music, never heard of 'Searching for Sugar Man.' Now I have, and I have to get 'Cold Fact' and see the film.
  5. Nicolosi

    Bravo, James. Perhaps, one day, we'll all be enlightened enough to realise that sexuality isn't a choice, and we are what we are.... Here's hoping.
  6. Seasonal Poetry

    Navy blue, coyly folded in my back right hand pocket, apparently.... Shocked, I say! Shocked, and rolling on the floor mostly crying with laughter. Not to mention mortified that I had anything to do with 'Spring of Teal.' Also, red should come with a pre-booked hospital appointment. There was a dude who was pretty damn awesome until his hanky got dyed by mistake. He was far from a prude but lord when he saw some he threw that hanky in a bin by the lake. You have experienced a small thread hijack. Now, back to your regular programming on the AwesomeDude poetry channel. Great poetry for AwesomeDudes.
  7. Seasonal Poetry

    Swift and Tawdry compared to the marvelous two above. Still, it is Christmas. Consider this as a pair of socks... or a handkerchief from an aged aunt. There was a time Tum te tum When Christmas came Tum te tum My stocking was filled Tum te tum With presents inane Years went by Tum te tum I found my flame Tum te tum And so at last Tum te tum 'Santa' stuffed my ahhh... se
  8. King of Shreds and Patches

    TR left us a while back. He was a wonderful soul and I miss him. Wherever he is I'm sure he's happy you loved his story.

    Here you go, Nigel;

    Yep, we're like a gaggle of two legged jock-straps.
  11. Hello Camy, just wanted to say Hi!

  12. Flash Fiction

    Flash varies, depending on who you talk to. Some say 300 words; some 500, we went for 1,000. Gee's 'After School Surprise' is, technically, complete. You might not like the ending, but it has one... or, perhaps he's leaving it open for someone else to continue?
  13. Watching the Inauguration?

    I watched. Couldn't not. The transmission cleverly omitted the appalled roar the crowd of protesters gave as he was sworn in. Then came his speech, and it all suddenly became real. A dystopia, often written about, is here. For real. Crap. Added to Brexit, the UK's nightmare, it's really not looking good. Hey ho. May the true force be with us all.
  14. Happy New Year!

    Just a wee cheery message to wish all at Awesome Dude a fantabulous, wonderful, and thoroughly stonking 2016! My waters tell me it's going to be a peachy year compared to the last one (El Nino excepted): fingers crossed they're right. Ave, upwards and onwards, and a big hug for the Dude.
