Vespers

I make my way down the broken path
Blackened rough and ragged
Stretched out like a dried out
Magma River

An amber flash beams my wants to attention
And I obey
Turning my rocket mind
Inside out

The Avatar beckons
And I obey

Approaching the Temple

A wary sinner
I unscrew open

Metal and plastic place of prayer
My choices three
A trinity of divinity pouring

As a spider weaves her silk across
She freezes at my finger

I press a Premium button


The Temple words flash
"Begin Pumping"
"Begin Pumping"
"Begin Pumping"
And I obey

Filled up,
Driving away,
I am at peace.

I love your writing. I remember in the last entry you made (or was it this one?) where you wondered if you were revealing too much about yourself. As long as you write under a pen-name, how could you?

I went to a university with an English professor who would enroll some of her students in essay contests. I was chosen as a contestant by her, but my wife threw a hissy when she found out it involved a 200 mile drive and we had to pay for lunch and dinner.

Anyway, that might be a venue for you.

If you endear yourself to an English professor, they can show you writing opportunities that very few people outside the literary world know about - it's really their job; most don't do their job - unless you endear yourself to them.

The professor I was talking about - it was easy for me to endear myself to her because she also happened to be hot (which I think was another one of my wife's secret objections) but anyway, it's out there if you look in the right places.

Good luck!
