In Terrorist Territory, Colombia 2008 [Fiction]

Nowhere in the world does it rain so much. Nowhere does humidity seep as deeply and incessantly into flesh and bones as in El Chocó. In most of this region on the Colombian Pacific Coast just south of the jungle-hidden border with Panamá, there are no roads, and mud is ubiquitous and treacherous. Machitas, knee-high…

A Butterfly’s Promise [Non-Fiction]

A mass of teddy bears formed an impenetrable wall that stretched the length of a city block. Those bears, in an array of colors, sizes and shapes, sat shoulder to shoulder in silence, a tribute to the hundreds that perished in the Oklahoma City bombing. The community, as well as the nation, was still reeling…

Eat Red Grapefruit With Your Hands [Poetry]

Cut it in half and half again. Eat it all now or save some for later. Use your hands. Let the succulent juice run sticky on your fingers, cheeks, lips and nose. Feel the flavorful pulp touch your tongue, fill your mouth, and slide down your throat. Peel back the thin layer separating the segments….
