  • Harper's Ferry: A Short Story

    In my last few weeks at Harpers Ferry, a man in his mid-fifties walked into the Provost Marshal’s office. He was a big man, maybe six foot four. Bald, overweight, wearing a red polo shit and sagging cargo pants with sunglasses pressed into his forehead. I was already talking to a family from the Carolinas interpreting the experiences of the town’s citizens after the war, when across the former slave states Provost Marshals were replaced by agents of the newly formed Freedman’s Bureau. They were…

  • Creative Writing: Les Jardins D Eiffl

    note the large, pillared building to my right. It is a Catholic Church, Paroisse Saint-Pierre du Gros Caillou. The parish stands in obstinate objection to the infringement of luxury stores taking over the street. The sidewalk alternates between cobblestone and smooth cement. History, here, is refusing to yield to tourism. As we continue on Saint-Dominique, it is becoming abundantly clear that we are getting closer to the tower, as the streets are becoming more crowded. I could turn onto Avenue…

  • Fortunato: A Short Story

    She was pacing, back and forth, her deep auburn hair looked sloppy, as if she had not brushed it in days. She wore a charming black silk dress, that appeared to have not been ironed and she looked upset. I began to feel guilt, she looked absent, just wandering in the plaza. I began to approach her, thinking about what to say, maybe if I calm her worried soul, she won 't wonder where her dear Fortunato is. Upon closer inspection, her make-up had been smeared, her eyes looked disoriented, “ My…

  • Creative Writing: The Last Ride

    The Last Ride Gidal awoke from his short-lived rest, his eyelids - peeled apart to reveal a scene that was none too familiar to him. He had been on the same train for three days, the sound of train wheels clanging was just white-noise. The outside world, only visible through small cracks in the wooden carriage. He was a Jew, like the other seventy who had been herded carelessly into cattle cars, treated as if they were animals – pests. He went to peer out one of the small cracks, pushing his…

  • Romeo And Juliet: A Short Story

    It took another day of travel before they arrive at the next frontier of Hell. Juliet can see buildings erupting from the slick oil spill of an ocean, and smog hanging low over the daunting infernal mess. The sky is a soupy grey, smoke billowing over the city’s spires as shrill screams echo within their crumbling walls. It’s kind of horrifying to look at, but Juliet can feel that Romeo is here, so she dredges up all her courage and carries on toward it. After the rough day she’d had, Juliet…

  • Spanish Language In Cusquenhos

    We young folks in Cusco were very much concerned with poetry as much as Bolano’s visceral realists did in Mexico City but unlike them, Octavio Paz was not our enemy. We loved discussing the labyrinth of solitude but It was the poetry of Cesar Vallejo, Arguedas, Garcilazo that matter to us. It reflected our Andean traits. Cusquenhos are different from coastal Peruvians. We are because of our cultural traits. We are visual, silent, introverts, stoic and very much good listeners and enjoy jokes…
