Tomorrow We Vote For Our Lovers

Because everyone’s obviously feeling inundated and overwhelmed with all of the political commentary consuming the Internet, I decided this week to give everyone a break, and write something quick and simple about love and romance for Five By Five Hundred instead.

Just kidding. It’s a metaphor, fool.

Nonlinear Romance

Today over at Five By Five Hundred, I’ve included a brief excerpt from a short story & play I’m working on about love and time travel, and an endlessly cyclical relationship where both parties start at different times. (and then of course as I type that I think “ah shit, now everyone’s gonna think I’m ripping off of River Song and The Doctor, or I’m trying to re-write The Time Traveler’s Wife. Oh well). There  might be more from the story next week; or, I might do something entirely different. Who knows! (answer: you do, if you’re a time traveler)

May: Great Month, or Greatest Month?

I like May. Everyone’s happier in May. We’re all still a little fat from the winter, but when the sun finally shines on a beautiful weekend day, everyone appreciates it so much after the long, dark seasons. Everyone wants to look their best as they soak up the rays. By the time August rolls around — sure, everyone’s practically naked, but it’s no longer sexy. It’s just fucking hot. But in May, it’s like magic; the first signs of skin exposed for all the sunny smiles to see. I’m sure there’s a cynical metaphor about relationships somewhere in here as well.

Anyway, here’s my newest little piece on Five By Five Hundred:\
