Gus Bigman, the Giant

There once lived a giant, not your ordinary run-of-the-mill giant. Spiders and beetles fought each other for a place to room in his greasy hair. He never brushed his teeth. They were greenish-yellow. Some people who lived in the next state … Continue reading

Golem Says Goodbye

Not sure what else to say except it was too much, couldn’t be the tough everyone wanted, no blood coursing through my veins like humans tinkered together by He Who Shall Not Be Named, the same ones who called me into being with magic up the yin-yang. On the … Continue reading

Sweeter

Another golem came around. Oh, yes. There’s more than one. Talked to students, retirees, regular people. And what happened?

The Golem on Feeling Unsettled

Golem Takes a Hike on Black Friday

Twisted Bay laurel trunks lean down the hillside branches covered in moss scarves quail make a quick exit like a troupe of dancers racing across stage lights to fame, the only flowers are spindles of yellow ivy on a path … Continue reading
