shot glass
"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


Anthony tends to fidget with his thoughts in the hope of laying them to rest. He has managed to lay them in a number of establishments, including, Jerry Jazz Musician, Synchronized Chaos, Literary Yard, Oddball, Shot Glass Journal and Ariel Chart.

It's September tomorrow, I heard someone say
In passing below the Cathedral, standing sentinel
Amongst the broken walls and coal seams above the riverbank.

I love how words invoke feelings.
Do we share September?
That notion of time.

The year falling towards winter,
As autumn's honesty
Creates beauty through transparency.

Chestnuts drop from a height, split against the pavement,
Like memories crouching against your train of thought
As you lurch towards sentiment,
Leaves bristling underfoot, the rain thrumming the trees.
