  1. And a more sensual splash of a woman gone wondering . . .
    there could not be, for a debut kicking its heels
    into a site's sense of destiny.

    Grace of my thanks to Madam Fouquet
    for changing the panache of the colours in the way the lights flashed
    from the moment she sashayed into our salon.

    Have you a questing welcome spirit?
    Then make it your Salon as well ~ WOMEN, LOVERS, FRIENDS & MOTHERS

    ~ Absolutely*Kate, believing in believers
    and the senses of a good classy dame

You Were Perfectly Fine by Dorothy Parker

This is my favorite hangover story. A raise of the glass to the inimitable Dorothy Parker.


You Were Perfectly Fine

Oh.”The clear-eyed girl, sitting light and erect on the couch, smiled brightly at him.“Not feeling so well today?” she said.“Oh, I’m great,” he said.”Corking, I am. Know what time I got up? Four o’clock this afternoon, sharp. I kept trying to make it, and every time I took my head off the pillow, it would roll under the bed. This isn’t my head I’ve got on now. I think this is something that used to belong to Walt Whitman. Oh, dear, oh, dear, oh, dear.”“Do you think maybe a drink would make you feel better?” she said.“The hair of the mastiff that bit me?” he said.”Oh, no, thank you. Please never speak of anything like…

Blink-Ink #23 Mystery Train receives grand reviews

Many congratulations to a little magazine with big content! I'm proud to say I've been involved since the inaugural issue. Even my "Edgar Allan Poe-boy" postcard, a lagniappe insert, gets a nod in these reviews:


Blink-Ink- Number 23 NewPages Lit Mag Review

New Magazine for 50-word Fiction Features Memorable Life Snapshots- from The Review Review

Perhaps, the first instance of a term I coined "literary drag." If you know of other cases, please let me know in the comments.
Long Live Blink/Ink!
