NO SOONER THE WORD THAN THE FICTION

Role-Play and Perspective

A couple of very different pieces of mine have gone up at Every Day Fiction and Every Day Poets over the last couple of days. The first one, “Role-Play”, is a very short flash on corporate bonding. Fairly insubstantial, but it amused me. The second one, “Perspective”, is a bit more serious, and is – sadly – based on a real event. RIP Maurice (who, in case you’re wondering, was originally known as Wallace, but acquired a new moniker when Mrs P shouted at him for misbehaving and accidentally combined his name with his brother Marvin).

  1. So sorry about Maurice; I still mourn my Yum Yum who’s been gone four years, and your poem brought on the tears even as I admired the Auden reference.
