VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Kaci Skiles Laws

Ghosts My mother was crazy. She was crazy in love with my dad long after he started ‘working late hours.’ She loved him even after his broccoli casserole was too cold, and he hit her for the first time, two years into their marriage.  There were times the biscuits were overdone; the ice cubes had notContinue reading “VOICES FROM THE FIRE: Kaci Skiles Laws”

Obligatory Editor’s Rant

Well, it’s not really an obligation…I still have free will, after all…don’t I…that’s a tricky inquiry isn’t it? Being electromagnetically spastically animated bones and meat on an interconnected bio-sphere to further propagate the zany super-cosmic string that is life with existential multi-planed vibrations so the universe doesn’t flatline.
