Short-staffed

I’m sorry I haven’t written in a while. For once, I have a normal excuse: I’ve been hard at work getting the 2018 Winter Issue of Come and Go Literary together! It’s been an amazing experience learning how to use InDesign and organizing everything into, what I think, is a good looking online journal.  I’m…

Another Cup

I’ve had two cups of coffee today and I’m sure I’m going to have another one soon. It’s just one of those days. But that’s okay. I love coffee and I love writing about coffee. I wrote this poem a while ago in my journal, but never thought to put it on the blog. Tell…

Find a person not like you, write down twenty physical…
