This is wonderfully done...the piece in its entirety I read twice just so I didn't miss anything..but the idea of seperating a man from his thumb instead of a thumb from the man made me starting thinking...


Mark, you continue to amaze me with your writing prowess. Beautiful. Although very original it had hints of Bukowskian influence, hopefully you'll take that as a compliment =) keep up the amazing work. i swear one day i'll be telling my grandkids about the day i met Mark in a McDonald's lol. Awesome Write!



A strong write, Mark, with a lot of energy and flow.
Really enjoyed this piece.


remarkable tale in the
loss of blues...

those beautiful blues
you loved fighting.
