The Pawn #poetry #chess #selfimportance

Low man on the totem pole you only move one space you live in anonymity without even a face * strive against the elements success is but a plan each, every tiny move one square against the man * a lonely and exhausting job this game against the odds work it’s cut out for youContinue reading “The Pawn #poetry #chess #selfimportance”

All the Leaves are Brown #californiadrought #watershortage

“Red” is in this Season #prose #socialism #photography

“You look good in red,” all the store clerks said as they gathered round admiring their work.
